WHAT IS GOOD SEKI) STOCK? 



Seed stock always commands a premium over commercial stock, and many 
growers in an effort to secure the higher prices are tempted to list extra 
nice stock as seed without stopping to realize what is expected of seed. 
Varietal purity is only one factor. What about the germination test? 

Grain with poor germination qualities must not be listed as seed. In 
his article on page 2, Mr. J. L. Burgess, who is in charge of the State Seed 
Testing Laboratory at Raleigh, explains how the farmer may test his seed.

THE FARMER'S INTEREST IN GOOD SEED 

By J. L. Burgess 
IMPORTANCE OF A PERFECT STAND 

We can perhaps get a better idea of the relative importance of a per- 
fect stand by a simple calculation of the possible yield of corn from an 
acre on which each hill of corn produces a good stalk Avith a good ear — 
the theoretical acre yield. 

A piece of land 210 feet square contains about one acre — a little more, 
but for convenience of calculation will call it an acre. If the corn is 
planted eighteen inches apart and in rows three feet apart there will be 
9,800 hills to the acre. If each hill produces a stalk with a good ear 
there will be 9,800 good ears to the acre. It requires about 100 average 
ears of corn to shell one bushel; this ideal acre will, therefore, produce 
about 98 bushels of shelled corn. 

There are a number of causes that may operate to reduce the 
stand to one-half or two-thirds normal; but among the leading causes 
must be reckoned that of poor seed that either fail to sprout, or sprout- 
ing, fail to come up and grow into a vigorous stalk capable of producing 
a good, well matured ear. We will suppose the seed corn planted had 
forty grains out of every hundred that Avould not come up, or that the 
seed corn showed only 60 per cent germination. This low germination 
would at once reduce the stand from 9,800 to 5,880 hills to the acre, and 
thus reduce the yield from 98 bushels to about 59 bushels. It not infre- 
quently occurs that seed corn having every appearance of being per- 
fectly sound will, on examination, show a darkened or decayed kernel 
incapable of germination and growth. 

Sometimes the seed corn is damaged in only a slight degree and will, 
under favorable soil conditions, sprout and send the first leaves above 
ground. But every farmer has seen the yellow, spindling unthrifty corn 
plant that never amounts to anything. In many cases ten per cent of 
the plants will be of this character, due to slightly damaged seed. Add 
to the loss of stand caused by poor seed, the losses caused by cut worms, 
bud worms, birds and accident, and we soon reduce the effective stand 
to fifty per cent or less, and the yield, from 98 bushels to 49 bushels, or 
even less, and that on soils of maximum fertility. Every corn grower 
knows the "replant" is worth little except for forage. 

^VTiat has been said of the perfect stand of corn applies with equal 
force to other crops. Poor seed wheat — small, shriveled, undeveloped 
grains — will produce only a poor stand of wheat with many weakling 
plants that are finally killed during the fall and winter by depredations 
of insects, and rigorous Aveather. The yield of Avheat is therefore 
reduced from a possible twenty-bushel yield to an actual yield of not 
over ten bushels. Only a casual look at a cotton field will show the 
dwarfed, spindling, undeveloped stalks that grow from small, half 
mature seed. Most cotton fields have the yield reduced from fifteen to 
tAventy-five per cent on account of Aveakling stalks and poor stand, due 



Farmers' Market Bulletin 3 

to the use of seed of low vitality. All who grow the clovers and grasses 
are painfully aware of the frequent entire failure of crops due to the 
use of dead seed or seed of such low vitality that the plants could not 
withstand the rigors of the season. 

RELATIOX OF VITALITY TO DEVELOPME]VT AND MATURITY 

ISTot only is the crop yield frequently greatly reduced by an imperfect 
stand due to dead seed or seed of low vitality, but the development and 
growth of the plant and the normal maturity of the crop are also affected 
by the use of seed of low germinating power. A careful examination of 
a field of wheat, for example, will generally reveal plantlets of very 
different degrees of growth when the crop is first coming up, and this 
difference is generally maintained throughout the development and 
maturity of the crop. A shriveled or immature grain of wheat is likely 
to produce a small stalk wath a small head. A great many of these 
small heads occurring in a wheat field will, of course, reduce the yield. 
Again, if the farmer knows, as he should, that his seed are poor, and the 
circumstances are such that he can get no better, he will necessarily sow 
miore wheat to the acre than would be required were his seed of the best 
quality. The same is true of other farm crops. Poor, immature seed 
must not be expected to develop and mature normal crop yields. jSFot 
■only is the yield reduced by the use of seed of low vitality, but the poor 
stand occasioned by the use of such seed also gives the depredatory 
W'Ceds a chance to get a foothold while the crop is still on the land. 

IMPORTANCE OF CLEAN SEED 

What farmer in Xorth Carolina, particularly in Piedmont jSTorth 
Carolina, has not had a field of wheat so full of cockle and wild onions, 
or a field of oats so full of cheat or chess, or a field of clover so overrun 
by dodder and wild carrot that he was ashamed to show it to his neigh- 
bors? What farmer has not had the market price of his wheat reduced 
l)y its contents of cockle and wild garlic ; or his oats by the presence of 
cheat and darnel ; or his clover seed by the large amount of a score of 
different kinds of weed seeds? It not infrequently happens that when 
the wheat, oats or clover is cleaned of the noxious Aveed seeds, the 
farmer gets back not more than four-fifths, by measure, of the original 
harvest. Whence these weed pests ? Many of them are now so well 
established in the fields that we sometimes feel they have existed here 
since the land was first cleared. All farmers know that wild onions and 
cockle will come in the wheat notwithstanding perfectly clean seed were 
sown. But America w^as not the mother of the ordinary weed pests of 
the United States. On the contrary, the dodders, the wild onion, Avild 
carrot, cheat, dog fennel, crab grass, Spanish needles, sheep sorrel and a 
host of others familiar to every farmer, came to us direct from Europe' 
in imported agricultural and vegetable seeds ; and, like a number of 
animal immigrants from the same source, have found American soil 
delightfully congenial in which to multiply, and are now scattered far 
and wide over the entire countrv. 



Farmers' Market Bulletin 



COST OF WEED SEEDS 



When the farmer pays the seedman $25 for a bushel of clover seed 
that contain 20 per cent of weed seeds and sows these seeds without 
recleaning them, he loses a vast deal more than the $5 cash paid for 
the weed seeds. 

In a field sowed to such unclean seed the owner is likely to find all the 
noxious weeds, and a good stand of them, ever met with in N^orth Caro- 
lina, and the whole crop, w^eeds and all, entwined in the destructive 
yellow "love vine" or dodder. This parasitic dodder plant not infre- 
quently kills acres upon acres of clover, and thus robs the farmer of both 
his seed and his hay crops. When no dodder occurs and the hay crop is 
allowed to mature, the presence of coarse, woody weeds will greatly 
reduce the value of the hay. Similar remarks may be made about many 
other crops, the seed of which is generally subject to weed infestation. 

Then comes the labor of eradicating these noxious weeds. Our farmers 
can never hope to produce good, marketable seed of Avheat, oats, rye 
and the clovers on weed infested soils ; neither can the dairy man hope 
to j)roduce milk and butter free of the odor of garlic so long as his 
pastures remain seeded to wild onions. These weeds must go ; and the 
labor necessary to eradicate them will require no little outlay. 

SOW OJLT GOOD SEEDS 

From what has been said it is evident that the farmer's first object, 
in the process of securing a normal crop yield, is to know precisely what 
kind of seed he is about to plant, whether they are sound, well matured, 
and viable. How can he know, of a surety, that the seed he sows will 
come up and grow ? By testing them before planting. 

This testing for vitality may be done by the farmer, or any member 
of the family. Corn, wheat, oats and other large seeds can be tested 
by simply placing 100 seeds between thick pieces of blotting paper or 
thick cotton cloths and keeping these cloths moist and at room tempera- 
ture till the seeds either sprout or decay. Those that sprout will, 
roughly, represent the number per hundred that may be expected to 
come up when planted in the field. In case the farmer does not find time 
for this test for vitality he can take advantage of the N^ortli Carolina 
State Seed Laboratory and send them there to be tested: It is always 
wise to test seeds before sowing them, and in most cases the crop yield 
depends upon having all commercial seeds examined for purity and 
germination by the State Seed Laboratory before purchasing, or, at 
least before paying for them. The farmer should always see that the 
seeds he buys from seedsmen are sold under a guarantee, and that they 
are properly labeled to show the percentage of purity and germination ; 
and the date the germination test was made. Then send a small sample 
to the State Seed Laborator}^ to see whether they come up to the 
required guarantee.

production. 




) eggs — the number her mother 
laid. 



This hen had a pedigreed sire. 



223 eggs — the number this len 
laid. 



The Poultry Department of the North Carolina Experiment Station has 
shown that high egg production is inherited, and further, that it is transmitted 
by both sire (father) and dam (mother). 

The above picture graphically illustrates I>ady Raleigh and the number of 
eggs her mother laid and the number she laid in one year. The sire of Lady 
Raleigh was from high-producing hens for several generations back. Her 
mother was a low producer and was from low producers for many generations 
back. The power of high egg production in Lady Raleigh was inherited from 
her sire. She laid 228 eggs and had several sisters that laid over 200 eggs. 
Her mother laid but 80 eggs, and none of her sisters laid over 100 eggs. Care 
in selecting Ijreeders, both males and females, is essential. — B. F. EaupiJ.

spring Measures for Sweet Potato Disease Control 

AS RECOMMENDED BY THE 

DIVISION OF PLANT PATHOLOGY 



. Sweet potato growers should begin early to combat the diseases 
responsible for the destruction of so much of their crop. Careful 
attention given to sanitation in the bedding of potatoes will accom- 
plish this end. The sanitation measures which may be used most 
effectively are (1) The Careful Selection and Disinfection of the Seed 
Potatoes, (2) Care in Preparation of the Hot Bed, and (3) Crop Rota- 
tion. 

SEED SELECTION AND DISINFECTION 

Before the potatoes are bedded they should be picked over care- 
fully and any with black rot spots and all badly wounded potatoes 
thrown out. The sound, healthy potatoes should then be disinfected 
by immersing for ten minutes in a solution made by dissolving one 
ounce of crystals of corrosive sublimate (bichloride of mercury) in 
8 gallons of water. (Use only wooden receptacles.) If a large quan- 
tity of potatoes are to be treated, about 50 gallons of solution should 
be made up. After treating 10 bushels in 50 gallons, one-half ounce 
more of the corrosive sublimate crystals should be added and the water 
brought up to 50 gallons. Corrosive sublimate will dissolve readily 
in hot water. The potatoes should be treated just before bedding. 
Rinsing in water after treatment is not necessary. As corrosive sub- 
limate is quite poisonous, due precautions should be taken to keep 
it out of reach of live stock. J 

If corrosive sublimate can not be obtained, or, if for other reasons 
it is not advisable to use it, the potatoes may be disinfected by im- 
mersing for 5 minutes in a solution of formaldehyde (commercial 40 
per cent) made by diluting one quart of the formaldehj^de with 50 
gallons of water. This solution can be used repeatedly without losing 
strength. The potatoes need not be rinsed but should be bedded 
soon after treatment. 

PREPARATION OF HOT BED 

If the old hotbed is to be used, the dirt should be carted away and 
replaced by new soil or sand from the woods or elsewhere where sweet 
potatoes have never been grown. The framework should be disin- 
fected by spraying with a solution of formaldehyde of the strength 
recommended for the treatment of the potatoes. All decayed sweet 
potatoes and rubbish likely to harbor the disease germs should be 
raked up from around the bed and carted off or, preferably, burned. 
Cover the potatoes with soil or sand from the same source as that 
used in making up the hotbed. If manure is used as a source of heat, 
be sure that it has not been infected with the disease germs by throw- 



Farmers' Market Bulletin 3 

ing rotted sweet potatoes on it. If the bed is near the barnyard, 
fence it in or cover it with chicken wire to keep chickens, dogs, etc., 
from running over it, since they may carry the disease germs in on 
their feet. 

CROP ROTATION 

By carefully following out the above directions, slips free of diseases 
may be grown, but they may still become diseased if they are planted 
on ground where diseased sweet potatoes were raised the previous 
year. It is therefore necessary to plant the slips on new ground or 
on ground where sweet potatoes have not been grown for several years. 

SOURCES OF CERTIFIED SWEET POTATO PLANTS 

Anticipating requests from growers, the Division of Horticulture 
and Plant Pathology publish at this time an incomplete list of pro- 
ducers of certified sweet potato plants. There are doubtless many 
others in position to supply certified stock. Such parties should no- 
tify the Department of Agriculture, Raleigh, as to number of plants 
of each variety thej^ will have for sale. 

The prospective buyer is strongly urged to insist that all plants, 
whatever the origin, be certified by competent authorities as free from 
both insect infestation and plant diseases.

IN THIS BULLETIN MAY ADDRESS EITHER THE GROWERS OR GORRELL SHUMAKER. 

ACTING CHIEF, DIVISION OF MARKETS, RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA 



A Partial List of Products Which Farmers Have 

For Sale 



IMPORTANT NOTICE: 

The practice of mailing to growers each month special cards upon which to list products has been 
discontinued. Hereafter merely send card or letter describing products you wish to list. 

Lists of products wanted of for sale must reach this office by fifteenth of each month to be in- 
cluded in following Bulletin. Write descriptions and address clearly. 

No remittances by check or otherwise should be made to the Division of Markets. Buyers and 
sellers must effect their own transactions. 

This Division assumes no responsibility whatever in any transaction effected through informa- 
tion furnished through the Mahket Bulletin. It is its purpose, however, to eliminate the listing 
of products by growers who fail to give honest descriptions of the grade and character of products for 
sale. 

Farms for sale may be listed, but only bv the owner. 

Grade or scrub sires will not be listed. 

The Botany Division of the N. C State Department of Agriculture, Raleigh, will gladly make 
germination tests on all field seeds offered for sale through this Bulletin. This service will be free 
unless the offerings are made by bona fide seedsmen. 

Kindly mention the M.ati.k:et Bulletin when writing growers concerning products listed.

CO-OPERATIVE WOOL AUCTION SALES 

For the purpose of assisting North Carolina sheep growers to secure the 
highest possible price for their 1920 wool clip, definite plans are now under 
way for holding three cooperative wool auction sales in the State this sum- 
mer. One of these sales will be held at Asheville, another at Greensboro 
and a third one at Washington, these sales to be held at a time most satis- 
factory to the sheep growers in the State. The exact date will be announced 
later. 

These three sales will be held under the auspices of the North Carolina 
Sheep Breeders' and Wool Growers' Association. However, all ' sheep 
growers in the State are invited and urged to consign their wool to these 
sales. 

Briefly the proposed plan for conducting these cooperative wool auction 
sales is for the wool to be assembled at whichever of these above points is 
■most convenient to the sheep growers in the various sections of the State, 
either by shipping it or by hauling it thru the country as conditions warrant. 
Upon arrival at destination, the wool will be received by a committee having 
the matter in charge. Soon after arrival it will be graded by a regular com- 
mercial wool grader, according to quality and standard grades, and later 
offered for sale at auction, the right being reserved to reject any or all bids 
if not satisfactory. 

Careful, and complete records will be kept of the grade, weight of each 
grade, and price received, for each lot of wool consigned to the sales. After 
the wool is sold, each consignor will be given a statement showing the fore- 
going, and a check will be issued him for amount due after actual expenses 
of selling the wool have been deducted. 

By assembling the wool from a number of counties (fifteen or twenty) at 
each point in this way, it is thought that a considerable number of buyers 
will be attracted to these sales, including a number of buyers from eastern 
markets, and in this way secure competitive bidding and enable wool growers 
to get the highest possible price for their wool. 

Since these sales will be strictly cooperative, there will be no selling com- 
mission charges, nor any other expense except what is actually incurred, 
such as for freight in getting the wool to the point of sale, drayage, a rela- 
tively small storage charge and insurance while in storage. 

It is thought that arrangements will be made for obtaining the services of 
a commercial wool grader from one of the eastern markets to grade the wool 
without expense to the consignors. Therefore, the expenses of the sales 
should be reduced to a minimum and at the same time a very splendid mar- 
ket provided. 

These sales will be under the supervision of George Evans, Secretary, 
North Carolina Sheep Breeders' and Wool Growers' Association, West 
Raleigh, and the Undersigned, to whom inquiries for further information 
may be directed. 

This plan of marketing wool has been giving highly satisfactory results in 
other states and there is no reason why it should not be equally as satisfac- 
tory in this State.

FOOD PRODUCTS INSPECTION SERVICE 

The Federal Bureau o£ Markets, among its other activities, main- 
tains for the benefit of SHIPPERS AND HAN'DLERS OF FRUITS 
AND VEGETABLES, an inspection service in most of the larger 
cities of the country. Inspection offices are established in some 25 of 
the largest cities, and from these offices inspections are made in about 
125 additional cities. 

This service is open to shippers, receivers, railroads, or any other in- 
terested parties. In case of dispute over a shipment, you can call on 
the inspector for the market in which the car is located, and he will 
make a thorough examination, and issue you a certificate, setting forth 
all the facts regarding the quality and condition of the goods. It is 
provided in the law that this certificate will be received as prima facie 
evidence in all United States courts. 

This inspection service is purely a service and is in no sense a regu- 
latory or police organization. The inspector will examine a shipment 
and make a report upon it only when requested to do so by some one 
having a financial interest in the transaction, and he has no authority 
to do anything more than issue a certificate to you on the condition of 
the shipment at the time of inspection. He is not in any way author- 
ized to say what disposition shall be made of such shipment or to act 
as mediator in settling disputes or making adjustments. The j)urpose 
of this inspection work is simply to provide a means of securing an 
accurate report from an impartial and unbiased inspector, in order to 
afford some basis on which the disputants can settle their differences 
promptly with fairness to both sides. 

If you ship goods which some one rejects without good cause, or if 
you purchase goods and the shipper does not send the grade of stuff 
you bought, the Government provides you, through this inspection ser- 
vice, "with the means of securing a report of the exact condition of the 
shipment. Requests for inspection may be made by wire or letter. 
Such request should state the kind of product, the car number, the name 
of the receiver and the delivering carrier, and the particular point con- 
cerning which inspection is desired, if any. 

A small fee is charged for each inspection. This fee is $2.50 for any 
quantity from half a car-load up to a full car load and $1.50 for any 
quantity less than half an ordinary carload. For inspection made in 
the smaller markets the applicant is charged with the actual expenses 
incurred by the inspector in making the trip, these expenses being in 
addition to the regular inspection fee. 

The law provides that inspections may be made only on such ship- 
ments as have moved in interstate commerce.

Carolina Department of Agriculture and the North Carolina State College of Agriculture 

and Engineering, in cooperation with the United States Department of Agriculture 

B. W. KILGORE, Director 



Vol. 7 Raleigh, N. C, July 1, 1920 No. 36 

Entered ae Second Class Matter, April 9, 1920 at the postofiBce at Raleigh, North Carolina, under 
the Act of June 6, 1900. 



IMPORTANT NOTICE: 

The practice of mailing to growers each month special cards upon which to list products has been 
discontinued. Hereafter merely send card or letter describing products you wish to list. 

Lists of products wanted of for sale must reach this office by fifteenth of each month to be in- 
cluded in following Bttlletin. Write descriptions and address clearly. 

No remittances by check or otherwise should be made to the Division of Markets. Buyers and 
sellers must effect their own transactions. 

This Division assumes no responsibility whatever in any transaction effected through informa- 
tion furnished through the Maeket Bulletin. It is its purpose, however, to eliminate the listing 
of products by growers who fail to give honest descriptions of the grade and character of products for 
sale. 

Farms for sale may be fisted, but only bv the owner. 

Grade or scrub sires will not be listed. 

The Botany Division of the N. C. State Department of Agriculture, Raleigh, will gladly make 
germination tests on all field seeds offered for sale through this Bulletin. Thus service will be free 
unless the offerings are made by bona fide seedsmen. 

Kindly mention the Market Bulle'i'in when writing growers concerning products listed.

COOPERATIVE WOOL SALES 

For the purpose of assisting North Carolina sheep breeders to market their 
1920 wool clip to the best possible advantage under the present demoralized 
condition of the wool market, arrangements have been made for holding three 
cooperative wool sales in the State this summer, as follows : Asheville, August 
31st ; Greensboro, September 1st ; Washington, September 3d. 

Any sheep grower in the State may consign wool to these sales, which are 
being held under the auspices of the North Carolina Sheep Breeders' and Wool 
Growers' Association. 

Inasmuch as considerable time will be required to grade and otherwise pre- 
pare the wool for the sales after it has been received at the warehouse, all wool 
to be included in these sales must arrive at place of sale during the week of 
August 9th to 14th. Detailed shipping instructions will be furnished upon 
application. 

On the day of the sale the wool will be offered at public auction, the right 
being reserved to reject any or all bids if not satisfactory. However, arrange- 
ments are being made to have buyers present from a considerable number of 
markets, and it is hoped this plan of selling will enable sheep growers to 
obtain the best possible price for their wool under existing conditions. 

After the wool has been sold the actual expenses of conducting the sale will 
be prorated among consignors in proportion to the amount of wool consigned by 
each, and checks issued for balance due. 

Arrangement for Manufacturing Wool Into Blankets 

If for any reason the wool in these sales is not sold, arrangements have been 
made with one of the larger woolen mills in the State whereby this mill will 
take this wool and make it up into blankets at a minimum charge. These 
blankets will then be returned to the farmers in proportion to the amount of 
wool consigned. Approximately eight to ten pounds of unwashed wool is 
required to make one double blanket. 

This latter arrangement will not only give farmers blankets for home use, 
but in case of surplus will give them a product for which there is a ready 
market, and in this way assure them of a market for their 1920 wool clip. 
Further information concerning these sales may be obtained from George 
Evans, State Sheep Field Agent, West Raleigh, or the undersigned, under 
whose supervision these sales are being held.

NOTE IMPORTANT CHANGES IN DATES OF THE 
COOPERATIVE WOOL SALES 

For the purpose of assisting North Carolina sheep breeders to market their 
1920 wool clip to the best possible advantage under the present demoralized 
condition of the wool market, arrangements have been made for holding three 
cooperative wool sales in the State this summer, as follows : Asheville, Sep- 
tember 14 ; Greensboro, September 15 ; Washington, September 17. 

Any sheep grower in the State may consign wool to these sales, which are 
being held under the auspices of the North Carolina Sheep Breeders' and Wool 
Growers' Association. 

Inasmuch as considerable time will be required to grade and otherwise pre- 
pare the wool for the sales after it has been received at the warehouse, all wool 
to be included in these sales must arrive at place of sale during the week of 
August 30th to September 4th. Detailed shipping instructions will be furnished 
upon application. 

On the day of the sale the wool will be offered at public auction, the right 
being reserved to reject any or all bids if not satisfactory. However, arrange- 
ments are being made to have buyers present from a considerable number of 
markets, and it is hoped this plan of selling will enable sheep growers to 
obtain the best possible price for their wool under existing conditions. 

After the wool has been sold the actual expenses of conducting the sale will 
be prorated among consignors in proportion to the amount of wool consigned by 
each, and checks issued for balance due. 

Arrangement for Manufacturing Wool Into Blankets 

If for any reason the wool in these sales is not sold, arrangements have been 
made with one of the larger woolen mills in the State whereby this mill will 
take this wool and make it up into blankets at a minimum charge. These 
blankets will then be returned to the farmers in proportion to the amount of 
wool consigned. Approximately eight to ten pounds of unwashed wool is 
required to make one double blanket. 

This latter arrangement will not only give farmers blankets for home use, 
but in case of surplus will give them a product for which there is a ready 
market, and in this way assure them of a market for their 1920 wool clip. 
Further information concerning these sales may be obtained from George 
Evans, State Sheep Field Agent, West Raleigh, or the undersigned, under 
whose supervision these sales are being held. 

Chaeles S. Jones, 
State Live Stock Market Agent. 



GRADES FOR APPLES 



LEGAIi STANDARD FOR NORTH CAROLINA 
Effective September 1, 1920 

According to the provisions under the North Carolina Standard Package 
and Grading Law, no person shall pack for sale, ship for sale, offer or 
consign for sale, any apples which are not graded in conformity with the 
legal North Carolina grades described in this article, unless there be 
plainly and neatly marked upon the package or package cover, in conspicu- 
ous letters the words "NOT GRADED" to indicate that the contents therein 
have not been graded to conform to any of the grades adopted as the legal 
standard for North Carolina. 

The grades are, in substance, the same as the grades recommended by 
the Federal Bureau of Markets, except with minor changes in the color 
requirements, and, as given, were heartily endorsed by Western North 
Carolina apple growers at a meeting called in Asheville in June to consider 
the proposed grades. They are as follows: 

STANDARD FANCY 

Shall consist of firm, hand-picked, properly packed apples of one variety 
which are normal in shape, uniform in size, and free from dirt, bruises, 
insect injury, disease, mechanical injury and other blemishes or defects, 
except those necessarily caused in the operation of packing and those so 
inconspicuous as not to be detected in the process of efficient grading. 
Each specimen shall have the amount of color specified for this grade in 
Section 2 of these Rules and Regulations. 

STANDARD A 

Shall consist of firm, hand-picked, properly packed apples of one variety, 
which are practically normal in shape, practically free from dirt, bruises, 
insect injury, diseases, mechanical injury, and other blemishes or defects, 
except those necessarily caused in the operation of packing. Each specimen 
shall have the amount of color specified for this grade in Section 2 of these 
Rules and Regulations. 

STANDARD B 

Shall consist of firm, hand-picked, properly packed apples of one variety, 
which do not conform to the foregoing specifications of grade, but which 
are free from decay, worm holes, and serious bruises, and which are not 
materially deformed or discolored. 

cuTjiiS 

Shall consist of apples which do not meet the requirements of Standard 
B grade. 

ORCHARD GRADE 

Shall consist of hand-picked apples of one variety from which the culls 
have been removed. It shall be unlawful for a person to sort from a lot 
of apples any of the large sizes or better grades and pack the remainder 
as Orchard Grade. 



4 Farmers' Market Bulletin- 

' UNCLASSIFIED 

Shall consist of apples which do not conform to the foregoing specifica- 
tions of grade, or if conforming are not branded in accordance therewith. 
The minimum size of the fruit in the package shall also be branded upon it 
as hereinafter specified and in addition to the other marks.

Faemeks' Market Bulletin 5 

TOLERANCE 

In order to allow for variations incident to commercial grading and 
handling, a tolerance for defects of ten per centum below the standard 
shall be permitted in each grade, pro^^ded that not more than five per 
centum of culls shall be allowed in each grade. An additional tolerance of 
five per centum on size shall be permitted in each grade. Tolerance shall 
be computed by weighing or measuring. 

DEFINITIONS 

The minimum size of the fruit in all classes or grades shall be deter- 
minded by taking the transverse diameter of the smallest fruit in the pack- 
age at right angles to the stem and blossom end. Minimum size shall be 
stated in variations of one-quarter of an inch, as two inches, two and one- 
quarter inches, two and one-half inches, and so on in accordance with the 
facts. Minimum sizes may be designated by figures instead of words. 
The word Minimum may be abbreviated thus, "Min." 

The term properly packed shall be interpreted to mean that the package 
shall be filled compactly enough to prevent the movement of the fruit 
within the package, but not so full as to cause excessive bruising. 

SPECIAL REGULATIONS 

The apples in the face or exposed surface shall fairly represent the 
average of the apples in the package. 

Every closed package containing apples grown in or shipped into this 
State which is sold, offered or exposed for sale, packed for sale, or shipped 
for sale, shall bear in plain letters or figures, or both: 

1. The name and address of the person by whose authority the apples were 

packed (e. g. Hillcrest Orchards, Burnsville, N. C). 

2. The true name of the variety. If unknown mark, "Variety Unknown." 
.3. The accurate grade name (Standard A, etc., or "Ungraded"). 

4. The minimum diameter of the fruit contained in the package (e.g., 
"Min. Size, 2%"). In case of boxed apples of standard pack the num- 
ber of apples in the box instead of the minimum size shall be stated).

U. S. Grade No. 1 

U. S. GRADE No. 1 shall consist of sound sweet potatoes of similar varietal 
characteristics which are practically free from dirt or other foreign matter, frost

and length, and, in addition, six per centum by weight, may be below the remaining 
requirements of the grade. 

Any lot in which the diameter is not less than one and one-half inches, and 
which contains a greater percentage by weight of sweet potatoes below one and three- 
quarter inches than is permitted in U. S. GRADE No. 1, but which otherwise 
meets with the requirements of such grade, shall be designated as U. S. GRADE No. 
1— MEDIUM. 

Any lot in which the length is not less than sLx inches, not more than twelve 
inches and which contains a greater percentage by weighlf of sweet potatoes above 
ten inches in length is permitted in U. S. GRADE No. 1, but which otherwise 
meets with the requirements of such grades, shall be designated as U. S. No. 1 — 
LONG. 

U. S. Grade No. 2

ments of this grade.

ments of any of the foregoing grades. 

DEFINITIONS OF GRADE TERMS AS USED IN THESE GRADES 

"Practically Free" means that the appearance shall not be injured to an extent 
readily apparent upon casual examination of the lot, and that any damages from the 
causes mentioned can be removed without appreciable increase in waste over that 
which would occur if the sweet potato were perfect. 

"Diameter" means the greatest dimension at right angles to any portion of a 
central line running through the sweet potato from stem end to root end.

can be removed without increase in waste of not more than ten per centum by weight 
over that which would occur if the potato were perfect. 



A PARTIAL LIST OF PRODUCTS WHICH FARMERS HAVE FOR SALE 



IMPOHTANT NOTICE 

The practice of mailing to growers each month special cards upon which to list products has 
been discontinued. Hereafter merely send card or letter describing products you wish to list. 

Lists of products wanted or for sale must reach this office by fifteenth of each month to be 
included in following Bulletin. Write descriptions and address clearly. 

No remittances by check or otherwise should be made to the Division of Markets. Buyers 
and sellers must effect their own transactions. 

This Division assumes no responsibility whatever in any transaction effected through infor- 
mation furnished through the Market Bulletin. It is its purpose, however, to eliminate 
the listing of products by growers who fail to give honest descriptions of the grade and charac- 
ter of products for sale. 

Farms for sale may be listed, but only by the owner. 

Grade or scrub sires will not be listed. 

The Botany Division of the N. C. State Department of Agriculture, Baleigh, will gladly 
make germination tests on all field seeds offered for sale through this Bulletin. This service 
will be free unless the offerings are made by bona fide seedsmen. 

Kindly mention the Market Bulletin when writing growers concerning products listed.

THE APPLE SHOW 

The Western North Carolina Apple Show will be held in Asheville October 
27-29th. Here will be a display of apples competing for the largest prize list ever 
offered in the South, educational exhibits of extreme value, and interesting exhibits 
of commercial orchard supply companies. The Growers' Conference is alone worth 
attending. The program committee has chosen topics of vital interest and es- 
peciall.y fitting to the present need. In this connection, men of National horti- 
cultural reputation have been secured. The conference will give the growers an 
opporturwty to meet each other and to discuss mutual problems. 

The First Great Western North Carolina Apple Show is primarily a fruit growers' 
enterprise. Every feature has been worked out to make it a valuable exhibition 
for fruit growers. All arrangements are progressing in a satisfactory manner. 
Whether or not the show will be a success now rests ivith the apple growers of the State. 
If the growers support the event with their presence and with exhibits, the show 
will be a splendid success. You are urged to give the show your support to make 
it a success. 

Apple growing has become a highly specialized business requiring specialized 
knowledge. The prospect for the specialist in fruit production was never as prom- 
ising as it is today. The increased ravages of diseases and insects and the demand 
for better fruit are operating in his favor b}' forcing the uninformed out of business. 
Fruit growers should now exert themselves to acquire all possible information to 
perfect their orchard operations. There is no place or way in which this can be 
done more economically and effectual^ than by attending the Western North 
Carolina Apple Show. 

It is a good time now to organize your plans to attend and to exhibit at Ashe- 
ville. The premium list shows the many and various classes and the generous 
prizes. In view of all these things the question is not "can you afford to go," 
but "can you afford not to go to the show." T'he Apple Show needs your support. 
It is your show. Get behind it.

SOYBEAN AND COWPEA SEED CROP 
APPROXIMATES 1919 



Better Yield Per Acre Expected This Year — Prices Start Off Below 

Last Season 

The extremely high prices that were paid for soybeans and cowpeas last spring 
do not seem to have had much effect in inducing growers to save a larger proportion 
than usual of these crops for seed or grain purposes this fall. To judge from reports 
received by the U. S. Bureau of Markets during the week ending November 6, 
the acreage that will be harvested for seed this season will not differ materially 
from that harvested last year. 

In most sections the weather has been favorable for the production of an excellent 
quaUty of soybeans and cowpeas. It was supposed because of the abundance of 
forage that less of these crops than normally would be used for forage purposes 
and more for seed production. The difficulty, however, in obtaining adequate help 
at a cost commensurate with the returns from these crops has been an important 
factor in decreasing the acreage cut for seed. Farm laborers seem to be able to 
make more money, or at least an equal amount, with less effort, picking cotton 
than they can picking cowpeas or harvesting soybeans. 

Larger Acreage in Soybe,\ns 

A larger acreage and better yield per acre of soybeans than last year is expected 
in most of the important producing sections, except possibly eastern North Caro- 
lina, where reports are conflicting. Some of the largest gains in acreage are recorded 
for sections west and north of the main producing areas where a shortage of early 
varieties has been felt each spring for several years, particularly last spring. Alore 
soybean harvesters than usual are said to have been sold to growers in these sec- 
tions, which fact should have a bearing on the acreage cut for seed.

CHIEF, DIVISION OF MARKETS, RALEIGH. NORTH CAROLINA 



2 Faemees' Maeket Bulletin 

The green clover worm did considerable damage to t'he soybean crop in eastern 
North Carolina last year but little or no damage this year. The larger percentage 
of unfilled pods in this section this season probably will offset the reduction in yield 
per acre last year caused by this worm. The average yield per acre this season in 
the different sections ranges from 420 to 960 lbs., as shown in the accompanying 
table. 

Harvesting Not Yet Finished 

The harvesting of the crop has not been completed and thrashing is just begin- 
ning in many sections. Although a few sales of country-run Virginia or North 
Carolina grown soybeans have been made at $2.50 and upward per 100 lbs., the 
movement of the 1920 crop from growers' hands will not take place much in advance 
of December 1. The prices given in the table are nominal bids and do not repre.sent 
actual transactions. Growers apparently are not disposed to sell at these prices, 
which are about $1.25 per 100 lbs. lower than last year at a corresponding time, and 
large buyers prefer to wait until they can get a better line on the general supply 
and demand. 

The decrease in the acreage of cowpeas harvested for seed this year probably 
will more than offset the slightly increased yield per acre, and consequently the 
1920 production is estimated to be somewhat smaller than the 1919 crop, which 
was considerably below normal. In many sections a considerable quantity of cow- 
peas could have been saved for seed, but pickers were needed, or chose to remain, 
in the cotton fields. Although prices for cowpeas have been high, growers in the 
South have realized more from their cotton, and it continues to have preference 
over cowpeas. The harvesting of the 1920 crop of cowpeas will be completed during 
this month, and there still is a possibility of more cowpeas being thrashed than is 
estimated at this time. Prevailing prices of $2.50 to $3 per 100 lbs. for country-run 
seed, however, are not much of an inducement for growers to save seed, especially 
since these prices are 75 cents, to $2 per 100 lbs. lower than at the beginning of the 
season last year. — Market Reporter.

TOBACCO GROWERS ORGANIZE 



Tobacco growers from all over North Carolina thronged the Raleigh auditorium 
on Wednesday, January 12, in what proved to be perhaps the most interesting 
and tar-reaching meeting oi growers in the history of the State. The extremely 
low price levels diu'ing recent months have caused tobacco farmers everywhere to 
study seriously the hmitationt. of the present marketing system, and the general 
conclusion that a completely new system is essential was responsible tor the series 
of meetings held recently in tobacco States of this section. 

The Tobacco Growers' Co-operative Association to be composed of growers of 
North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia had already been endorsed by State 
meetings in Virginia and South Carolina so that the hearty endorsement given the 
organization at Raleigh practically made the movement a "go." It remains now 
for the organization committee to sign up 50% ct the tobacco growers under the 
crop contract agreement before the co-operative marketing of tobacco by the 
association begins. Judging from the great display of interest at the Raleigh 
meeting this should not be a difficult task. 

The handling of tobacco under the new system is entirely in accordance with the 
practices of the most successlul California co-operative organizations. In other 
words a strictly American system is advocated. The growers are to be organized 
on the basis of the commodity they have for sale rather than on the geographical 
location of their farms. 

The central feature of the plan is the crop contract. Growers agxee to dispose of 
their entire crop for five years through the organization, and 50% of the acreage 
of this entire section must be "signed up" before the agreement becomes binding. 
The tobacco crop of the members will be assembled at central warehouses for grad- 
ing and storage purposes, and the most skilful men available will be employed to 
market the association output. The central office of this organization will be at 
Raleigh.

SELLING BY GUESS SELDOM 

PROFITABLE FOR THE FARMER 



That Produce Dealers are Usually Willing to Buy by This Method 
Good Indication on Whose Side the Advantage IjIes — They Won't 

Sell by Guess 

"Guess weights and measures" are seldom profitable for the farmer. This prac- 
tice is unbusinessUke. It indicates a carelessness of the value ot the thing he is 
selling, and the buyer would be more than human if he did not take some advantage. 
A "guessed bushel" ot potatoes is more likely to measure 43^ pecks than 33^. 

Where sales are based on weight the grower is paid for what he dehvers. When 
the bar balances at 100 pounds both parties know that full value has been given 
and received. 

An Argument for Scales 

The best argument for the installation of a good set of scales in a convenient 
place on the farm is that, while the produce dealer is nearly always willing to buy 
"by guess," he is seldom willing to sell that way. The most conspicuous piece of 
equipment in the vegetable stall, the meat market, or the grocery is an accurate 
pair of scales. The produce that is bought "by guess" is sold by ounces. The 
dealer is a practiced buyer and attains some degree of accuracy in making his esti- 
mates. Thus he has the advantage of skill not possessed by the farmer who lacks 
experience in making his estimates. 

The dealer has another advantage not held by the farmer. As he sells by weight, 
he has a means of checking the accuracy of his guess. If he finds that the weight 
of a steer, tor instance, was less than he estimated it to be when he purchased it.

2 Farmers' Market Bulletin 

he may recover his loss by charging the customer more or by taking out the loss on 
the next "guessed" purchase he makes. The loss is likely to fall not on the dealer, 
who incm'red it, but upon innocent parties. 

Sometimes whole communities fall into the custom of selling produce by guess. 
The Bureau of Markets, United States Department of Agriculture, received the 
following letter in reply to a query addressed to a butcher : 

"It is practically impossible for me to even estimate live cost, weight of hides, 
quantity of offal, etc., as our cattle are nearly all bought by the dollar and seldom 
ever pass over the scales. Our hides and tallow are never weighed when taken off, 
and our other by-product values are bones, and we have no way of knowing what 
they are worth." 

The fact that this butcher buys nearly all his cattle "by the dollar" indicates 
that both he and many of the farmers in the vicinity are leaving the matter of weight 
to chance judgment, whereas it could easily be determined bj'' driving the cattle on 
scales and weighing them — the work of a minute or two. 

The Bureau of Markets, by publishing the prevailing market prices for meat 
and farm produce, offers free inlormation to the farmer that will place him on the 
level with the dealer so far as knowledge of prices is concerned, but unless the 
farmer has a set of scales available he can not use this knowledge. 

An accurate set of small platform scales should be a part of the farm equipment 
and every farm sale should be referred to them. If mounted upon rollers they can 
be moved from place to place as their services are required. If without rollers, they 
can be moved in a wheelbarrow. They should be kept in a building that is as free 
from dust and moistm-e as possible and should be tested with standard weights at 
least once a year. In some States the tests are made by law by an official who makes 
the adjustments necessary to restore the scale to balance, or, if this can not be done, 
condemns the apparatus and seals it so that it can not be used again until repaired. 

Answers Most Purposes 

Such equipment will answer most farm pm'poses, but a larger set of scales is occa- 
sionally required to weigh cattle, hogs, hay, or other materials too heavy or bulky 
to hft upon the small platform. Very often a merchant whose place of business is 
centrally located or a farmer who lives on a main road leading into town finds it 
a profitable investment to put in a .set of pit scales for the use of farmers and others 
who are bringing bulky material to market. When a farmer knows that he can 
drive his cattle or his loaded wagon upon the platform of pit scales without going 
out of his way, he wiU be less inclined to lump off a barnful of hay, or to seU his stock 
by the head. The owner of the scales receives a small fee for his services and the 
farmer a signed statement of weight which is the basis of payment when he delivers 
his load at the market or shipping yard. — -Special Information Service, U. S. Depart- 
ment of Agriculture

FARMERS' MARKET BULLETIN

Vol. 8 Raleigh, X. C, April 10, 1921 No. 44

the Act of June 6, 1900. 



SIGN UP! 



A VOTE FOR PROSPERITY 

Every signature to a Cooperative Marketing Contract for cotton or 
tobacco is a vote for prosperity. When the farmer has money everybody 
prospers. 

TWO CHANCES IN FIFTY YEARS 

Cotton and tobacco growers have had two chances in fifty years to sell 
at a profit. With Cooperative Marketing they will have a chance every 
year to "merchandise" their crops instead of "dumping" them, and prices 
will be stabilized. 

EIGHT CENTS vs. NINETY-TWO 

When you buy a smoke or chew others get 92 cents of your dollar — the 
tobacco grower gets 8 cents out of it. Cooperative Marketing will change 
this ratio and keep more money at home in North Carolina. 

TO UNDERSTAND IS TO SIGN 

Canvassers say that once a man really understands the Coiiperative 
Marketing contracts he always signs. There's an answer to most every 
question in the contract itself.

COOPERATIVE MARKETING CAMPAIGN 
GAINS MOMENTUM 



COTTON AND TOBACCO GROWERS SIGNING 

With the inauguration of the Tobacco and Cotton Marketing Campaign 
at Kinston, April 4th, Lenoir County becomes the thirty-fourth county in 
North Carolina to join in the fight for the organization of Cooperative 
Marketing Associations for the cotton and tobacco farmers in this section. 
The campaign was launched among the tobacco growers of Vance County 
early in March, and since then the movement has spread rapidly in all 
directions. A large number of the counties have limited their work thus 
far to educational work, but from all of those in which there has been 
intensive campaigning comes the report that never does a grower refuse to 
sign the marketing contract when once he becomes familiar with the plan. 

INTENSIVE CAMPAIGN NOW ON 

Mr. A. W. Swain, field manager of the North Carolina Sign-up Campaign, 
is in charge of a squad of trained men who, with the assistance of local 
workers, are now making a farm-to-farm canvass for signatures to the 
Cooperative Marketing Contracts. Growers who do not sign at the meet- 
ings held in school houses are afterwards reached by the canvassers, and 
once the contract is thoroughly explained they not only sign up, but insist 
on the canvassers seeing their friends and relatives and getting them to 
sign. These canvassers were in Johnston County March 2Sth to April 2d, 
in Lenoir County April 4th to April 15th, and from there will go to Pitt. 

RETURNS ENCOURAGING 

With the work only barely begun, very incomplete reports from the 
various counties indicated a large number of signers prior to April 1st. At 
that time Nash County was leading in the amount of cotton signed up and 
Vance County continued her lead among the tobacco producing counties. 
These two counties had practically half of the cotton and tobacco, respec- 
tively, signed at that time, with the campaign still on in full swing. 

OKLAHOMA OVER THE TOP 

Now comes a report from Oklahoma to the effect that the cotton growers 
there have signed up over 300,000 bales and are preparing to market this 
year's cotton crop through their own organization. Carl Williams, in 
charge of the Oklahoma Sign-up Campaign, has called a meeting at 
Oklahoma City for April 18th to develop plans for a national sales agency. 
It is expected that delegates will attend from other states, including 
Texas, Arizona, Arkansas, and Mississippi. North Carolina will also be 
represented. Aaron Sapiro, of California, is to attend and assist in per- 
fecting the plans for the National Sales Agency for cotton.

Farmers" Market Bulletin 11 



CHAWS 

Better coflperate and hire brains to sell your crop than to let others hire 
brains to take your tobacco away from you. 



Cor)perative marketing keeps California farmers prosperous — the hit 
and miss system of selling tol)acco keeps North Carolina groAvers from 
being prosperous. 



"If you don't think cooperation is necessary watch what happens to a 
wagon if one wheel comes off." 



Let go of your own bootstraps and grasp your neighbor's hand — to- 
gether you can reach out and grasp other hands, and first thing you know 
you are out of the woods and know you will get a fair price for your 
toljacco. 



Sign up now and cooperate — or else get ready to give away another crop 
of tobacco this vear. 



After you've signed a Cor»perative Tobacco Growers Agreement, go out 
and help get the necessary 50 per cent of all growers signed up. 



Quit struggling alone — sign and fight together.

subject of marketing farm products, to diffuse useful information relating 
thereto, and to furnish advice and assistance to the public in order to promote 
efficient and economical methods of marketing farm products, and authority is 
hereby given to gather and diffuse timely information concerning the supply, 
demand, prevailing prices, and commercial movement of farm products, 
including quantities in common and cold storage, and may interchange such 
information with the United States Department of Agriculture. 

Sec. 4. After investigation, and from time to time as may be practical and 
advisable, the board shall have authority to establish and promulgate stand- 
ards of opened and closed receptacles for, and standards for the grade and 
other classification of farm products, by which their quantity, quality, and 
value may be determined, and prescribe and promulgate rules and regulations 
governing the marks, brands, and labels which may be required for receptacles

such standard is applicable, unless it conforms to the standard, subject to such 
reasonable variations therefrom as may be allowed in the rules and regula- 
tions made under this act: Provided, that any farm product may be packed 
for sale, offered for sale, or sold, without conforming to the standard for grade 
or other classification applicable thereto, if it is especially described as not

THOUSANDS SIGN FOR COOPERATIVE 
MARKETING 

Tobacco growers to the number of 35,000 in Virginia and Xortli Caro- 
lina have signed for Cooperative Marketing under the five-year contracts 
based on the California plan of marketing farm products. With the 
addition of several thousand tobacco growers from South Carolina and 
new members in Virginia and T^orth Carolina before the membership 
campaign closes, it is expected that the tri-state marketing organization 
will have a total membership of about 50,000 growers at the start. 

The largest California cooperative marketing association has 13,000 
members, and the total membership in the six leading California organi- 
zations, is around 47,000. The Tobacco Growers' Cooperative Association

is already the largest group of farmers in a cooperative crop organization 
in the United States. Estimates based on production of members in 
1920 indicate that the association will likely control in the neighbor- 
hood of 350,000,000 pounds of the tobacco crop of 1922. 

Leaders say that the old ''auction" system of selling tobacco is to be 
replaced by a modern, business organization which can handle a total 
value of business running up to $75,000,000 on a nonprofit, cost basis, 
that will save the farmer members many millions now lost under the 
present method of taking the price the buyer offers on the warehouse 
floor. 

As soon as the campaign for members is closed, the three states are to 
be divided into districts, and elections held for directors. The directors 
are to complete organization in time to handle the crop of 1922 for all 
members of the Association. Once organization is completed, it is prob- 
able that no new members will be admitted until the crop of 1922 is sold, 
and the organization committee states that dues will be increased after 
the membership campaign is over. They are urging growers who have 
not yet signed to join now, so that they will be able to claim charter mem- 
bership and the advantage of a low entrance fee, together with an assur- 
ance of a ready market for next year's crop. Every man who joins at the 
start makes the Association that much stronger, and leaders hope to start 
with 75 per cent of the total production of the three states signed for 
cooperative marketing. 

Contracts for signing may be obtained by writing to A. "W. Swain,

FARMERS' MARKET BULLETIN 



Issued monthly by the Agricultural Experiment Station and Extension Service of the North 

Carolina Department of Agricultui'e and the North Carolina State College of Agriculture 

and Engineering, in cooperation with the United States Department of Agriculture 

B. W. KILGORE, Director 

Vol. No. 9 Raleigh, N. C, January, 1922 No. 47 

Entered as Second Class Matter, April 9, 1920, at the postoffice at Raleigh, North Carolina, 
under the Act of June 6, 1900. 



MARKETING LIVE STOCK GIVEN SPECIAL 
ATTENTION 

When Farm Demonstration Work was first instituted in the South, 
it conceived the idea of making this section self-supporting, to grow 
plenty of food and feed crops to supply its own needs, and to use cotton 
and tobacco as cash crops. 

So long and persistently has this doctrine been preached by those 
interested in Agricultural Extension that farmers working under the 
supervision of the Agricultural Extension Service demonstrated the 
soundness of this policy. 

Just here, however, a neAv problem arose. It was found that in pro- 
ducing the necessary food and feed for the farm, small surpluses of the 
various crops were left on hand for which there was a very unsatis- 
factory market. Some of these surplus crops were those of a few hogs 
and cattle, for which there was no local market except at certain sea- 
sons of the year and only a limited number could be handled at any 
time. There was surely some remedy for this as livestock could very 
profitably harvest crops like peanuts, soybeans and extra crops grown 
under the plan of diversified farming. There was no better way of 
marketing the surplus of corn than that of finishing a few hogs.

DIVISION OF MARKETS RALEIGH. NORTH CAROLINA 



2 Fakimers' Maeket Bulletin- 

Then came the plan of marketing this surplus of livestock, -which 
resulted in making cooperative shipments, whereby any number of 
farmers might contribute and ship to the central markets where the 
best possible markets were obtained. 

So helpful has this phase of marketing livestock been to a great state 
like Iowa that there are now 650 organizations of farmers engaged in 
shipping their own stock cooperatively, which handle about three-tenths 
of all the livestock shipped from that State. 

With the arrival of the cotton boll weevil in Xorth Carolina, our 
cotton growing areas will be forced to grow more livestock, just as has 
been done in other states visited by this pest. Many counties that 
formerly produced 40,000 to 50,000 bales of cotton had their plans in- 
terrupted by boll Aveevil destruction and are now shipping 400 to 500 
cars of hogs a year and at the same time learning to grow cotton under 
boll weevil conditions. Hog production has become a permanent part 
of the farming operations in counties of this nature, and must become 
more prevalent in Eastern and Central Xorth Carolina sections. 

To help take care of the marketing of surplus livestock in this State 
and to assist in the development of this very important industry to the 
State, the Division of Markets of the ISJ^. C. Department of Agriculture 
has secured the services of V. W. Lewis, Specialist in Livestock Market- 
ing, who will give his entire time to this phase of work. If interested 
in increasing your livestock or in disposing of extra livestock produced 
on the farm, the farmers of the State may secure the services of Mr. 
Lewis through their county agent, or by applying direct to the office of 
the Division of Markets, Raleigh, X. C, if there happens to be no 
county agent in the county.

THE FARMER'S CREDIT 

111 the present financial crisis nothing has giA'^en the farmer more con- 
cern and worry than his credit and financial relations. High prices for 
the goods he buys and lovr prices for the products he sells have put the 
farmer in need of borrowing to carry on his farming operations. But 
the farmer often finds himself unable to borrow the money he needs at a 
reasonable rate of interest and for the length of time it requires to pro- 
duce and market a crop. 

The commercial banks are not always in a position to lend the farmer 
money on the terms and conditions necessary for agricultural production. 
These banks are primarily adapted to loaning to manufacturers and 
merchants, in which businesses, the turnover of goods is rapid and the 
income regular. The farmer is eight or ten months producing and 
marketing his crop. His expenses occur during most of the months of 
the year. He receives the bulk of his income from several days sales 
toward the end of the year. 

Bankers have several objections to making loans to farmers: 

l.» The farmer wants longer loans than the banks are accustomed to 
allow — 6 to 12 months. 

2. The farmers' collateral is not satisfactory. Crops are uncertain; 

personal property depreciates rapidly; land titles are not legal 
proof except at considerable cost. 

3. The tenants or marginal farmers — the ones who need credit 

most — have little collateral of anv kind for security. 



THOSE WHO DESIRE FURTHER INFORMATION CONCERNING THE PRODUCTS LISTED 

IN THIS BULLETIN MAY ADDRESS EITHER THE GROWERS OR B. F. BROWN, CHIEF. 

DIVISION OF MARKETS, RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA 



2 Farmers' Market Bulletin 

4. Quite a number of farmers are careless and do not meet pay- 

ments promptly, when due. 

5. Farmers scattered out in the country are out of touch with the 

hanks and are not easily accessible. 

The upshot of all this is, that farmers often cannot get the credit they 
need from the banks. They must buy their goods on time from the store 
or depend upon some other expensive source for credit. The farmers of 
ISTorth Carolina buy $25,000,000 worth of fertilizer on time, paying a 
rate of interest ranging from 12 to 18 per cent. They buy millions of 
dollars worth of food and feed supplies on time and pay exhorbitant 
rates of interest. 

Credit conditions for the farmer must be improved. This can be done 
in two ways : 

1. Establishment, by the government, of a banking system to meet 

the short time credit needs of the farmer, or a radical revision 
of the present banking system. 

2. Voluntary cooperative banking by the farmers. 

Farmers buy and sell cooperatively. If they will set themselves to the 
task, they can do a cooperative banking business to meet their own needs. 
If the farmers of every community would unite and each take out a few 
shares of bank stock in a cooperative bank and hire an expert banker to 
conduct their business, they would soon solve their credit problems. 
Farmers are helpless now simply because they are not united and organ- 
ized in some institutions for handling their money and credit. 

The JSTorth Carolina Credit Union law provides for the establishment 
of such small credit institutions among farmers. A number of the 
Credit Unions are doing a real banking business among their members — 
receiving deposits, making loans, borrowing from banks at low rates of 
interest, and reloaning to farmers at reasonable rates. A number of 
these Unions are saving the farmers of their communities several thou- 
sand dollars yearly in the difference between cash prices paid with money 
borrowed at six per cent, and time prices that carry a rate of interest 
ranging from 12 to 25 per cent. 

The Division of Markets has the administrations of this law in its 
hands. It will be glad to send its Specialist in Rural Credit to talk to 
the farmers of any community on the advantages of Credit Unions and 
how they will help the farmer solve his financial problems.

SWEET POTATOES 

With, the advent of the boll weevil something must partially replace 
cotton as a money crop, and the sweet potato is proving itself one of the 
profitable substitutes. Enormous quantities of sweet potatoes have long 
been produced in the South, but only through the use of the storage house 
have they become a marketable product in other than local markets. In 
fact the storage house is the key to the marketing of sweet potatoes, as it 
makes it j^ossible to keep them in good condition over a long period of 
time, thus increasing greatly their season of consumption, in addition to 
the reduction in losses from rot. 

Inexperienced growers, however, should not rush blindly into a large 
scale production of sweet potatoes for the market. Only after growing 
them in a limited way so as to become thoroughly familiar with the pro- 
duction, handling, storing, and marketing practices are they prepared 
for any rapid development of the industry along commercial lines. 

The recent developments along the lines of cooperative marketing are 
making possible a sound expansion of the industry through cooperative 
endeavor. This makes possible the selection of uniform varieties and the 
standardization of grades and packs which are absolutely essential in any 
permanent marketing system. The use of a common brand, also, will do 
much to move the products and to cheapen advertising. Local units can 
be organized after the same plan, thus paving the way for their federa- 
tion into a State-wide selling organization. 

Individuals and groups of persons contemplating storage house con- 
struction or the organization of an association are urged to communicate 
with the JSTorth Carolina Agricultural Extension Service, Kaleigh. N. C, 
and to avail themselves of this agency.

FARMERS' MARKET BULLETIN 



Issued monthly by the Agricultural Experiment Station and Extension Service of the North 

Carolina Department of Agriculture and the North Carolina State College of Agriculture 

and Engineering, in cooperation with the United States Department of Agriculture 

B. W. KILGORE, Director 

Vol. Xo. 9 Kaleigh, N. C, April, 1922 Xo. 50 

Entered as Second Class Matter, April 9, 1920, at the postofRce at Raleigh, North Carolina, 
under the Act of June 6, 1900. 



STUDY MANNER AND TIME TO MARKET 
HOGS FOR BEST RESULTS 

Xorth Carolina is gradually increasing the number and quality of 
liogs in the State. This is particularly true in the section of the State 
■where cotton and peanuts are produced. 

As the cotton boll weevil advances over the State there will be a greater 
increase in hog production in those sections than ever before, and when 
this happens the natural question that the farmer is going to ask himself 
is, "What am I going to do with my surplus hogs ?" 

In the past each farmer who has produced a few hogs other than those 
for home use has looked to his local butcher to use them. This causes a 
great variation in the prices of hogs and makes it almost impossible for 
the farmer to get what his hogs are worth because he competes with other 
farmers who are doing the same thing. 

Xow the safe and sane thing to do is to consider putting these extra 
hogs on the market in the regular channels that farmers in the hog-pro- 
ducing section of the west and farmers west of us where the cotton boll 
weevil has forced the farmers to raising more hogs have used, and that 
is, the selling of these hogs as live hogs on the central markets. 

Xaturally, you will ask how this can be done? The answer is simple. 
Use what is known as cooperative shipping. It is handled in this man- 
ner : When enough farmers together have from 70 to 100 hogs weighing 
from 130 to 200 pounds each, these hogs are brought in on a certain day 
and shipped in a stock car. 

In order that each farmer may get the money from the sale of his hogs 
the hogs are given a mark made by clipping the hair on a certain portion 
of the body, usually on the hams, shoulders and back, and each farmer

DIVISION OF MARKETS, RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA 



2 Fakmee's Market BrLLETiN 

lias his own mark. His hogs are separated from the others on the market 
and sold, so that each farmer gets a check for his hogs after his propor- 
tionate part of the expenses of the shipment are deducted. 

The hogs are usually shipped in the name of a bank and the checks are 
forwarded by the banker to the farmers making up the shipment^ or they 
are deposited to their credit. 

By cooperative marketing the farmers of one of our eastern counties 
saved $300 on a car of hogs sold Tuesday, March 28th. It will pay you 
as it did these farmers to cooperate in selling your hogs. 

The correct marketing of these hogs in jSTorth Carolina also includes a 
change in marketing dates in order to avoid the glutted market that is 
produced by CORN^ BELT hogs, but the extra increase in prices will 
justify the change. 

On an average of ten years on the Chicago market live hogs have 
brought the highest prices in April and September. During last year 
the highest prices were received in March and August. We should try 
and make our cooperative shipments when hogs bring most money. It 
will be necessary to study these market dates from year to year. Under 
present conditions indications are that our farmers should have their 
hogs ready about a month earlier than the ten-year average of high 
prices indicate. 

Hogs will make one of our best money crops for jSTorth Carolina if fed 
and marketed properly. Doing this puts hog production on a definite 
basis instead of making it guess-work, as has been done in the past. 
Consult your county agent and the Office of Swine Extension about feed- 
ing hogs. The Division of Markets wall be interested in helping you get 
what hogs are worth when ready to sell. Remember to get your hogs 
ready weighing 200 pounds at the time when they bring most money.

FARMERS' MARKET BULLETIN 



Issued monthly by the Agricultural Experiment Station and Extension Service of the North 

Carolina Department of Agriculture and the North Carolina State College of Agriculture 

and Engineering, in cooperation with the United States Department of Agriculture 

B. W. KILGORE, Director 
Vol. Xo. 9 Raleigh, N. C, May, 1922 No, 51 

Entered as Second Class Matter, April 9, 1920, at the postofRce at Raleigh, North Carolina, 
under the Act of June 6, 1900. 



FARMER MUST SOLVE HIS OWN 
CREDIT PROBLEMS 

During the present financial depression there is one side of the farm- 
ers' credit problem in the South that has not been sufficiently appreciated 
by the farmers themselves. They have not considered sufficiently their 
own responsibility for their plight of indebtedness and the difficulties in 
securing enough credit. There has been too much condemnation of 
banks and bankers and our present banking system, and not enough 
prying into the weaknesses of the southern farmers' system of farming 
as a basis for securing credit. 

There is no doubt that the present banking system does not fully meet 
the farmers' credit needs. The truth is that it was not built for furnish- 
ing agricultural credit. It was built chiefly by business men for busi- 
ness purposes. It operates to meet the credit needs of the merchant and 
the manufacturers primarily. It will gain the farmer little to simply 
condemn the present banking system without appreciating the victory 
of its development. 

There are two means by which southern farmers can improve this 
situation with reference to credit: (1) They can begin to build banks 
of their own that can supply the kind of credit they need; (2) they can 
change their systems of farming so that they will need less credit and 
have a safer basis for securing the credit they must have. 

The biggest drawback to a very large number of southern farmers is 
that they have formed the habit of spending their incomes before they 
are earned. They have the habit of too much credit. They are always 
six to twelve months behind their consumption. They have saddled upon 
themselves a most costly credit system to furnish them with their sup-

OF MARKETS, RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA

plies consumed in advance. This is the reason for the crop lien system, 
and the supply merchant system, which charges rates of interest ranging 
from 10 to 50 per cent through time prices. 

Southern farmers cannot rid themselves of this bad system of credit 
until they change their habits of spending their incomes before they are 
earned. Southern farmers need to "catch up," get out of debt, and begin 
to earn their living as they go. They need to begin growing their ov^m 
feed and food supplies, to live at home. The South can very easily 
grow its own food and feed. The long growing season, the adaptability 
of the climate for growing so many crops, and the abundance of land 
make it possible to produce almost anything needed for consumption. 

There is no need to cut out the cotton and tobacco, the money crops. 
Utilize waste land for pasture, make feAver acres grow the same amount 
of cotton and tobacco and grow food and feed crops on the other acres. 
The type of farming that will make the southerii farmer rich and inde- 
pendent is self-sufficing plus commercial crop farming, and this is the 
type of farming that will make them independent of the supply mer- 
chant and give them a surplus for lean years. This -will do most to 
solve the credit problem. 

For the credit they must have farmers will do well to consider estab- 
lishing credit and banking institutions of their own. If farmers will 
cooperate on sufficiently large scale in their communities, they can have 
credit institutions of their oAvn and make them serve their own special 
needs. In thirty-five rural communities in North Carolina farmers 
have undertaken cooperatively to solve their credit problems through 
their own efforts. They have demonstrated clearly that farmers can 
relieve themselves of burdensome credits at supply stores by estab- 
lishing cooperative credit societies and operating on a cash basis. These 
credit societies are under the supervision of the State Division of Mar- 
kets. The Division will be glad to furnish information about the 
advantages and the formation of these societies upon request.

SELL WOOL COOPERATIVELY 



It seems that the sheep producers of the State are now to be rewarded 
for their efforts and willingness to continue sheep production rather 
than make the sacrifice of selling off their sheep when prices were low. 

Wool has recently advanced. The Breeders' Gazette of May ISth 
has the following to say: "Wool trade is active with an advancing ten- 
dency. Monday's London market was brisk at strong prices. A sharp 
rise in cotton has exerted a stimulating influence. A large percentage 
of the Western clip has already changed hands, but the Eastern market 
is clamoring for wool, and a general disposition to take current prices 
has developed no s;)Tiiptom of weakness. In anticipation of further 
appreciation, weavers are advancing prices of fabrics. About 85 per 
cent of the Oregon clip has already changed hands, the market advanc- 
ing from 27 and 28 cents to 35 and 38 cents with the best clips at 40 
cents per pound." 

On May 22, Coates Bros., commission firm of Philadelphia, wires as. 
follows : 

"Quarter and three-eighths blood wool worth here today 40 cents, and 
half blood 42 cents." 

One thing that the sheep producers of the State should interest them- 
selves in, is that of pooling their wool. Several small pools have been 
made during the past year when from 5 to 15 cents per pound was 
realized for the farmers over that offered by local buyers when there was 
no competition. 

It is estimated that from 60 to 75 millions of pounds of wool were 
disposed of through the various pools and concentration points in the 
United States in the season of 1921. 



THOSE WHO DESIRE FURTHER INFORMATION CONCERNING THE PRODUCTS LISTED IN THIS 

BULLETIN MAY ADDRESS EITHER THE GROWERS OR B. F. BROWN, CHIEF DIVISION 

OF MARKETS, RALEIGH. NORTH CAROLINA 



2 Farmer's Market Bulletin 

In the Xortliwest Missouri pool held at St. .Josepli, Mo., for the years 
of 1920 and 1921, the marketing expense in 1920 was 2.7 cents per 
pound; in 1921 the average total expense was 2.1 cents per pound. The 
cost per pound for operating the Regional pool at St. Louis in 1921 was 
2.25 cents. From 8 to 9 cents per pound more was received for the wool 
that was pooled than was made hy outside bidders hefore the wool was 
concentrated. 

There are four distinct benefits to be derived by the wool grower from 
this method of marketing : 

1. Stabilization of values. The very fact that quantities of wool are 
assembled and ready for sale, gives the product a greater consideration 
in the eyes of the manufacturers who want wool. In many instances, 
wool in various localities has advanced in price when it was known that 
the wool was being assemibled at concentration points. 

2. Educational value. Having wool graded and returning to the 
farmer a sheet showing the various grades of his wool with the prices 
received gives him an idea as to the market demands and the manu- 
facturer's objections to certain grades and manner of handling the 
fleeces. The increased prices for the better grades of wool will stimu- 
late the use of sires with better fleeces. The oflice of Sheep Extension, 
]^orth Carolina Agricultural Extension Service, West Raleigh, X. C, is 
giving this feature of the work particular attention. 

3. Wools from various sections become Jniown. A reputation in the 
wool trade soon becomes kno%vn, and in this way mills that can use wool 
of a certain character and grade know where to go for this wool. 

4. The producer gets more of the consumer's dollar. The financial 
depression that we have gone through has caused many to come to under- 
stand the great need for economic distribution of all agricultural 
l^roducts. 

Recent figures estimate that there are over 100,000 head of sheep in 
ISTorth Carolina, and that the average fleece is over 4 pounds, making 
approximately 400,000 pounds of wool. From figures given above 
regarding the present price of wool it is easy to determine the value of 
the 1922 wool clip for I^orth Carolina, provided all the sheep are sheared. 

If you are interested in selling w^ool, consult your county agent and 
.arrange for a small pool this year. During another season it is hoped 
that the wool producers of ]Srorth Carolina will arrange for pooling all 
or a greater part of the production. The Xorth Carolina Division of 
Markets, the oflice of Sheep Extension, and county agents are in posi- 
tion to give the producers assistance in working out a system for selling 
their wool.

FARMERS' MARKET BULLETIN 



Issued monthly by the Agricultural Experiment Station and Extension Service of the North 

Carolina Department of Agriculture and the North Carolina State College of Agriculture 

and Engineering, in cooperation with the United States Department of Agriculture

Vol. No. 9

under the Act of June 6, 1900. 




Real live hogs en route to market from Edgeconabe County, N. C, June 20, 1922. 



THOSE WHO DESIRE FURTHER INFORMATION CONCERNING THE PRODUCTS LISTED IN THIS 

BULLETIN MAY ADDRESS EITHER THE GROWERS OR B. F. BROWN, CHIEF DIVISION 

OF MARKETS. RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA 



THE PROOF OF THE PUDDING 



Below you will find a detailed financial statement of a car of hogs 
fed in Edgecombe County under the supervision of the Office of Swine 
Extension and handled on the market by the ISl. C. Division of Markets 
in cooperation with the County Agent. 

This is a concrete example of getting down to business on the part of 
farmers to determine the cost of producing gains on hogs for the market, 
and in getting these hogs on the market in the right manner for most 
money. 

The County Agent in Edgecombe County found four men who had 
surplus hogs that were "in their way," as the County Agent expresses it, 
if handled in the old way of carrying them along, and interested them 
in feeding these hogs for the market. 

The first thing this County Agent did was to seek the very best in- 
formation available in determining the proper rations for these hogs and 
the best manner and method of feeding them. He obtained this infor- 
mation from the Office of Swine Extension, State College, Ealeigh, N. C. 

In this way the farmers learned that in order to get best results it was 
necessary to have the weights of the hogs to determine the amount of 
feed they should have, and that there be no waste by improper mixing 
of the various rations, since a 40-pound pig does not need the same ration 
as a 140-pound pig. 

The pigs were weighed and the feeding began according to directions. 
The hogs were weighed again in thirty days and the feeding schedule 
was adjusted to suit the needs of the pigs, and so on. 

When the hogs had reached an average of approximately 200 pounds 
they were ready for the market. Since the hogs belonged to four farmers 
and neither had enough for a car, it Avas necessary to make a cooperative 
shipment. The hogs were marked by a "hair clip" so they could be 
identified and each lot sold separately on the market when they arrived. 
The details of this were looked after by a representative of the JST. C. 
Divison of Markets, Raleigh, N. C, who also accompanied the shipment 
to market along with the County Agent. 

Quotations on Southern hogs for the day that this shipment arrived 
were 10% cents per pound for tops, and this "subject" to killing soft. 
But in view of the fact that these hogs showed the effects of good feeding 
and quality, they were worth more money than the regular run of 
Southern hogs and sold for a cent per pound premium. 

Had these hogs been handled in the ordinary way in selling they would 
have brought $156.62 less than the returns indicate. Better feeding and 
being able to put the hogs on the market as a "product of quality" made 
it possible by proper marketing to realize 39 per cent of the profit above 
cost of feed. ($156.62 is 39 per cent of $398.19.) 



Faemers" Market Bulletin 3 

Another point we would have you note is that in order to get most for 
your hogs, "time" in selling is a big item. Note from the accompanying 
chart that in the early spring and late summer hogs have brought best 
prices for a period of twenty years on the Chicago market. ISTote in par- 
ticular that a heavy "slump" comes in the late fall when most North 
Carolina farmers are getting their hogs on the market. 

Note carefully the following figures: (On 67 hogs; feeding period, 42 
days.)

Earmers' Market Bulletin 5 

The above results were obtained from personal supervision by the 
Office of Swine Extension, tbe County Agent, and the N. C. Division of 
Markets. The cost of gains for the two lots well represent the cost for 
the carload. 

There are two other cars for cooperative shipments being fed in this 
same community in the same manner as the car just sold. It is hard to 
estimate the value of the work that is under way in this county, espe- 
cially since Mr. Bill Boll Weevil will soon be parading himself over the 
eastern half of North Carolina. Getting down to business as these four 
farmers have done to determine the results of feeding and marketing 
hogs is one of the best things that could happen to any cotton-growing 
community in this section. 

DEDUCTIONS 

1. To make money vnth hogs, we must have a knowledge of feeding 
and marJceting. 

2. Intelligent feeding embraces : Time, quality, cost. 

3. Intelligent marketing embraces : Time, quality, knowledge of value 
of the product and information concerning the markets. 

4. Over 39 per cent of the profit above cost of feed resulted from a 
knowledge of marketing. 

5. Look up your County Agent and arrange for feeding some hogs to 
determine the cost of putting on gains. 

6. Interest enough farmers with you to make a carload. 

7. Get two litters of pigs each year and be able to market them when 
prices are good — early spring and late summer. 

8. Put out a "quality product" that will command best prices. 

9. The Office of Swine Extension and the N. C. Division of Markets, 
Raleigh, JST. C, in cooperation with your County Agent, will be glad to 
help you map out a plan whereby feeding and marketing hogs can be 
put on a more profitable basis.

WOOL POOL A GREAT SUCCESS 



North Carolina wool growers are highly elated over the returns 
from the recent wool pool. The 43,879 pounds which were assem- 
bled and graded at fifteen local points sold for an average of 30.9 
cents per pound ; and had all the fleeces been free from burs, the 
average would have been five to eight cents per pound higher. 
These prices meant a saving to farmers of from ten to fifteen 
cents per pound and illustrate definitely the results to be accom- 
plished in offering the market a graded product, and that in quan- 
tities sufficient to justify consideration. 

Unfortunately only a small amount of western North Carolina 
wool was assembled in this pool, and when it is considered that 
a very large per cent of the wool included was burry wool and 
sold five to fifteen cents below the level for clear wool, it is 
evident that the average of these sales was very good indeed. 

The County Agents looked after assembling the wool. Mr. 
Samuel Greenwood, of the Wool Marketing Division, U. S. De- 
partment of Agriculture, Washington, D. C, and Mr. George 
Evans, of the Office of Sheep Extension, Raleigh, N. C, graded 
and classified it, and Mr. V. W. Lewis, Livestock Market Agent, 
of the State Division of Markets, Raleigh, handled the sales. 
The sales were held at the following points: Brevard, Charlotte, 
Salisbury, Clemmons, Wadesboro, Monroe, Tarboro, Washington, 
Plymouth, Edenton, Hertford, Elizabeth City, Shawboro, Beau- 
fort and Creswell. 

Growers are urged to see that the sheep are dry when sheared, 
and that the fieeces are stored in a dry place after shearing. 
The sales this season indicated that considerable losses are being 
sustained through the use of poor rams. Don't hesitate to spend 
a few extra dollars for a good ram, as he will pay for himself 
each season with a flock of forty ewes. 

Plans are already under way for assembling a much greater 
supply of wool next year into a smaller number of pools with the 
idea of securing even more satisfactory results. Interested 
growers should consult their County Agents for particulars.

Hogs— A Good Money Crop 

The following monthly averages in prices for hogs on the Chicago 
market for the past year were reported by the Chicago Daily Drovers 
Jonrnal : 

1921 1922 

July $11.75 January $ 7.90 

August 11.85 February 9.85 

September 9.65 March ' 10.45 

October 9.00 April 10.35 

November 8.00 May 10.50 

December 8.25 June 10.40 

July 9.80 

The past year has been a very good one for farmers who were inter- 
ested in hog production, and especially good for those in ISTorth Carolina 
who were willing to take advantage of the work recommended through 
the Agricultural Extension Service. 

Last winter several cars of hogs were fed for the early spring market 
according to information furnished through the Office of Swine Ex- 
tension and County Agents. Assistance in marketing these hogs was 
given by the State Division of Markets and most of the hogs sold during 
the month of March from eleven to eleven and three-fourths cents per 
pound in Richmond, a few being sold for ten cents per pound f.o.b. 
shipping point. 

This feeding and marketing of hogs in the winter caused a great deal 
more interest in this project, so that the v/ork has recently been taken up 
in many counties, especially those in the eastern part of the State. The 
larger part of these hogs were fed for an early August market and have 
been sold, the prices ranging from eleven to eleven and three-fourths 
cents per pound f.o.b. Richmond. 

Just as happens every year in this State, as well as other States, a 
large bulk of the hogs will go on the market in jSTovember, December, 
and January, and if a study of the accompanying chart is given, the 
result in prices will be evident as will be noted from the prices over a 
20-year average received at that time. Moral : Get your hogs ready 
when they will bring you most money. 

Until recently North Carolina hogs have been sold on the central 
markets in a class kno\^m as "Southern Hogs," which means that they 
sell at a discount over hogs from the West or even Virginia, but better 
feeding and getting Worth Carolina hogs on the market as a "product of 
quality" are causing the buyers to look Avith greater favor on hogs from 
North Carolina. 

This does not mean that farmers who fed the right kind of rations 
for a few days can expect that their hogs will command best prices, 
but the feeding must be done for a reasonable length of time, taking 



rARMEEs' Market Bulletin' 3 

into consideration the age and weight of the hogs when the regular 
fattening rations are started and the kind of feed used previous to this 
time. Consult your County Agent and the Office of Swine Extension, 
State College, Raleigh, N. C, about this point. 

Below are just a few points that farmers can easily control in making 
it possible to get more out of their hogs : 

1. Quit using that "scrub boar." He is too costly, even if the service 
is free. 

2. Have all litters farrowed within a few days if possible. The 
litters feed out well and show up better on the market. 

3. Castrate boar pigs before they are weaned. Even if not used for 
breeding purposes, late castration causes male pigs to show a "staggy" 
appearance which means a dock of one to three cents per pound, some- 
tim^es more. 

4. Gilts are sometimes bred forty to sixty days before ready for sale, 
the feeder thinking he will get extra weight. Bred gilts are docked 
twenty pounds on the Richmond market; sows, forty pounds; on some 
markets the dock is more. 

5. Consult your County Agent and the Office of Swine Extension 
about a better method of feeding your hogs. 

6. The State Division of Markets, Raleigh, iST. C, will gladly render 
assistance in marketing hogs and other livestock. 

7. See your neighbor and feed a car for the market ; cooperative sell- 
ing makes it possible to sell even one hog, and you will be rewarded for 
the efforts you make, as your one hog will be sold on its merits and the 
money returned to you after your proportionate part of the expenses 
of the shipment are paid.

FENCE FOR LIVESTOCK 

One of the most sadly neglected necessary things on southern farms 
is fencing. One reason for this is that our farmers have never seen 
the value of pastures as they are to see them under boll weevil conditions 
when more land must be devoted to food and feed-crops. 

The boll weevil has been spoken of as anything from a "pest" to an 
excellent ''farm manager." To the farmer who would like to continue 
"mining his soil" with no forward look as to what it will bring to future 
generations, the boll weevil is a "pest." 

In the October issue of Farm and Fireside, page 3, Dean Davenport, 
University of 111., asks this question : "Are we as a people simply going 
through a brief geologic period, only to become extinct like species 
that have gone before, as soon as we have destroyed the conditions 
of our own existence, by working out the stuif of which feed is made? 
Or may we hope for perpetual productivity?" 

If it is necessary to have the boll weevil to force farmers to necessary 
changes in farm management so that the farms may improve in fertility 
rather than continue the w^aste of soil fertility, then we might figure 
the boll weevil as a "farm manager" for cotton farmers in ISTorth 
Carolina are sure to make some of the changes which should ultimately 
be for a better fed state. 

To have a better fed state and a better fed soil in Xorth Carolina 
we need more livestock. To have better livestock, we need more pas- 
tures. To have more pastures, we must have more fencing. 

More farm fencing is sure to come in this state, and the matter 
resolves itself into Avhether the farmers will begin now to make these 
improvements or wait later and try to make the necessary changes in 
their farming operations "overnight" which is an impossibility. 

The North Carolina Agricultural Extension Service has started a 
campaign for more farm fencing in the state and every farmer should 
be interested in the plan. See your County Agent about this matter or 
write the Raleigh office.

COOPERATIVE PURCHASE OF PUREBRED POLANDS 

Fifty-three registered Poland-Chinas, consisting of three boars 
ready for service, twenty-five open gilts, and twenty-five bred 
sows, personally selected by a representative of the North Caro- 
lina Division of Markets, were recently purchased at the request 
of the Bank of Columbus, Whiteville, and County Agent Lazar, 
who distributed them among the farmers of Columbus County 
at actual cost. This plan not only saved the farmers consider- 
able money, but also kept the hogs within a limited area instead 
of permitting them to be scattered about over near-by counties, 
as would have resulted had they been sold at auction. 

This purchase grew out of the excellent returns secured 
through the demonstrations in feeding and cooperative market- 
ing of four cars of hogs from Columbus County during the sum- 
mer. In these trials the purebred and high-grade lots clearly 
demonstrated their superiority in economy of gains over the 
scrub lots. The car of purebreds will be used largely as founda- 
tion stock for the commercial production of market hogs.

PEANUT BUTTER OR STEAK? 

Peanut butter, according to speciahsts of the United States 
Department of Agriculture, contains one and a half times as 
much protein, over three times as much fat, and three times as 
much fuel value as steak. Also, about 17 per cent of peanut 
butter is carbohydrates, mostly starch, while steak contains no 
carbohydrates. These figures show that, pound for pound, pea- 
nut butter has a much greater food value than round steak. —

We congratulate the Marketing Bulletin issued from Austin, 
Texas, by the Texas Markets and Warehouse Department, upon 
the wisdom displayed in the selection of its motto, "Let's take 
care of the one blade of grass to the advantage of the grower 
before making an effort to have two grown where one had grown 
heretofore." This is getting right down to business, and it is 
no small job to market successfully the one blade. We do not 
wish to discourage sane production, but some steps must be 
taken to check the rush in many sections toward perishable 
crops whose consumption is so limited. 



Tell your friends about the MARKET BULLETIN. Let's 
make it bigger and better each month.

Cotton Farmers— Beware! 

By F. Sherman, Chief in Entomology 

Advertisements of traps, proprietary ''remedies," etc., for 
Boll-weevil are appearing in N^orth Carolina papers, and dealers 
are taking the agency to handle these. 

This merely tends to perpetuate the confusion of the problem 
and to cause farmers to spend their money for "that which is 
not bread." 

Xo farmer should depend on any remedy or process for control 
of Boll-weevil other than those which are recommended by state 
workers, federal workers, or county agents. These genuine and 
reliable methods are non-secret and are fully explained in public 
bulletins. 

Every cotton farmer should have a copy of Farmers Bulletin 
1262 of U. S. Department Agriculture (Washington, D. C), 
and Circular 124, JST. C. Agricultural Extension Service' (Ral- 
eigh, iST. C). Study these and follow them.

FARMERS' MARKET BULLETIN 



Issued monthly by the Agricultural Experiment Station and Extension Service of the North 

Carolina Department of Agriculture and the North Carolina State College of Agriculture

B. W. KILGORE, Director 



Vol. No. 10 Raleigh, N. C, March, 1923 No. 60

The enemies of Cooperative Marketing have charged that the con- 
sumer will have to pay more for what he huys if the farmers organize 
than he pays now. Let us see if this is true. 

On February 9, 1923, I bought five cents worth of raw, unshelled 
peanuts from a peanut stand at Washington, li. C. I received 3^/4 
ounces for my nickel. After shelling the peanuts I had one ounce of 
hulls and 21/4 ounces shelled peanuts. I found that more than 30 per 
cent of my original purchase consisted of peanut hulls for which I had 
no earthly use. 

On a basis of shelled peanuts a pound would have cost me 35 cents. 
I would have had the trouble of shelling them myself, because stores 
have not been selling shelled peanuts, and, of course, I should have had 
the hulls left for my trouble. About one-third of my purchase was 
hulls, and two-thirds shelled peanuts, for which I was charged 35 cents 
per pound on a basis of shelled nuts. 

On the same day I bought a pound of shelled peanuts (no hulls) 
from a well known chain store, for just 23 cents. The other fellow had 
shelled them for me, had kept the hulls for himself, and sold nie just 
what I wanted, high grade peanuts. 

I saved 12y2 cents per pound plus the labor of shelling and was not 
compelled to buy shells, in making the second purchase. The peanuts 
cost me 35 per cent less when I bought a pound than they did when I 
got 21/4 ounces shelled nuts for a nickel. 

And I should add that the pound of shelled peanuts which cost me 
35 per cent less than those I bought on the street, were put up by the 
(Vofithincd on Pdf/c 2)

HOW NOT TO BUY PEANUTS 

(Continued from Page 1} 
Peanut Growers' Association, a farmers' cooperative marketing associa- 
tion having five thousand members. 

Buy peanuts already shelled, and get them by the pound, depending 
upon the size o£ your family. Children are fond of peanuts and will 
thrive on them. In food value, the peanut outranks many of our well 
known food products. But so long as you depend upon the street vender 
for peanuts your children will never get their share. Buy them by the 
pound and let the children have all they want. 

Have the enemies of Cooperative Marketing told the truth? I leave 
the answer with the reader.

FARMERS' MARKET BULLETIN 



Issued monthly by the Agricultural Experiment Station and Extension Service of the North 

Carolina Department of Agriculture and the North Carolina State College of Agriculture 

and Engineering, in cooperation with the United States Department of Agriculture 

B. W. KILGORE, Director 

Vol. No. 10 Raleigh, N. C, April, 1933 No. 61 

Entered as second class matter, April 9, 1920, at the Postoffice at Raleigh, North Carolina, 
under the Act of June 6, 1900. 



OBSERVE SWEET POTATO WEEK 



The week of April 16-21 is to be proclaimed as North Carolina 
Sweet Potato Week in an effort to convert the surplus supplies 
now in the hands of growers into the cash which they will need 
for their farming- operations this season. 

Every household will be urged to BUY A BUSHEL during 
this week. 

Every grower is urged to see that only a first quality product 
is offered for sale, and both growers and dealers are urged to 
keep the price within the reach of every family in North Caro- 
lina. Civic clubs are ready to back this movement, which will 
be widely advertised in every part of the State. 

The Division of Markets can furnish names of parties having 
for sale a good grade of house-cured stock. 



SOLD OUT 



The Hewes Bros. Stock Farm of Turnbull, Miss., request us to 
advise our readers that they have no more carpet grass seed or 
lespedeza seed for sale. They received orders for far more than 
they had to offer. We should be glad to know whether others 
are deriving such benefits from their ads.

FARMERS' MARKET BULLETIN 



Issued monthly by the Agricultural Experiment Station and Extension Service of the North 

Carolina Department of Agriculture and the North Carolina State College of Agriculture 

and Engineering, in cooperation with the United States Department of Agriculture 

B. W. KILGORE, Director 

Vol. 10 Raleigh, N. C, May, 1923 No. 62 

Entered as second class matter, April 9, 1920, at the Postoflace at Raleigh, North Caro- 
lina, under the Act of June 6, 1900. 



RAPID GROWTH IN PRODUCTION OF CERTIFIED 
POTATO SEED 



Production of certified potato seed has made rapid strides in the 
last four years, according to the United States Department of Agri- 
culture. In 1919 there were in the United States but 3,750 acres of 
potatoes that met the requirements set for the production of certified 
seed. In 1922 the acreage reached 17,258, and the production of certi- 
fied seed was 2,273,900 bushels. In 1919, 43 per cent of the acreage 
inspected and offered for certified seed was accepted and passed; in 
1920, 52.75 per cent; in 1921, 59.5 per cent; while in 1922, due to 
higher standards called for by the regulations, but 40 per cent of the 
acreage ofi^ered was accepted as good enough for certification. 

Canadian potato growers have also been making increased effort to 
produce more certified seed, producing 309,665 bushels in 1922, as 
compared to 234,551 bushels in 1920. 

The grading of certified seed potatoes is being given much attention 
in a number of the States and Canada where grading inspection is 
required, and requirements are equally strict in all localities. Certified 
seed must live up to its name both in looks and in results. It must 
be free from varietal mixtures, true to type, and comparatively free 
from blemishes and mechanical injuries. The growers of certified seed, 
the inspection agencies, and the organizations conducting the marketing 
of the product are all equally concerned and share a mutual responsi- 
bilitv. 



CERTIFIED SEED POTATOES GIVE INCREASED YIELD 

While there has been an increasing tendency on the part of potato 
producers to use certified seed during the last few years, the favorable 
results that have been obtained from the use of such seed should en-

Certified Seed Potatoes Give Increased Yield

courage a much more general use cdF certified seed, says the United 
States Department of Agriculture. A number of States are now pro- 
ducing certified seed and have records showing the comparative yield 
from certified fields with the average yield of the State. In iSTew York 
State yields for ordinary fields averaged 103 bushels an acre, while the 
certified fields yielded 223 bushels an acre. In Minnesota the yield in 
favor of the certified seed over that of the ordinary fields was 60 bushels 
an acre, and in Pennsylvania certified fields yielded 366 bushels while 
the ordinary fields produced only 100 bushels an acre. Reports from 
other States show similar increase in yield from the certified fields in 
comparison to the average of the State. 

Certified seed sent from Michigan to several Corn-Belt States for 
experimental and demonstrational tests in 1921 showed a decided im- 
provement in yield over the local seed. In Iowa the increase in yield 
secured from this Michigan certified seed was 61.2 bushels, in Indiana 
21 fields showed an increase of 63 bushels, in Illinois 61 fields yielded 
44 bushels increase, while in Ohio, where the great part of the acreage 
of the State is planted with certified seed, the increase due to the 
Michigan seed was only 2.6 bushels. In two tests conducted in Delaware 
the Michigan certified seed averaged 681^ bushels more an acre than 
home-grown seed. 

Last season was a good. one for both producers and buyers of cer- 
tified seed. The large production of certified seed has brought the 
price so low that although reports show that a premium of 50 to 150 
per cent is being paid for certified stock the grower is at least getting 
a little profit out of his work, while the buyer is able to buy this seed 
at a reasonable cost.

FARMERS' MARKET BULLETIN 



Issued monthly by the Agricultural Experiment Station and Extension Service of the North 

Carolina Department of Agriculture and the North Carolina State College of Agriculture 

and Engineering, in cooperation with the United States Department of Agriculture 

B. W. KILGORE, Director 

Vol. 10 Raleigh, N. C, August, 1923 No. 63 

Entered as second class matter, April 9, 1920, at the Postoffice at Raleigh, North Caro- 
lina, under the Act of June 6, 1900. 



POINT-OF-ORIGIN INSPECTION IN TWENTY-TWO 

STATES 

An opportunity is now presented for many eooperators to put their 
marketing of fruits and vegetables upon a new and safer basis, securing 
shipping-point inspection certificates upon their entire out-put and 
basing their sales exclusively upon such certification. Such a course 
Avould put the association in a peculiarly advantageous position for 
the collection of just claims against the carriers, and also to secure 
settlements on the basis of the price originally agreed upon with a 
minimum of adjustment with the bu_yers. 

The act making appropriations for the United States Department 
of Agriculture for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 1922, authorized 
the Secretary of Agriculture to furnish inspection service at shipping 
points as well as in receiving markets. However, as no increase was 
made in the appropriation for the work, the Department has been 
limited in its field activities to such inspection work as could be 
handled in cooperation with various State departments or officers who 
had appropriations for similar work or who operated under laws which 
would peraiit the use of the fees to support the work. Twenty-two 
states have entered into cooperative arrangements with the United States 
Department of Agriculture for shipping-point inspection work on fruits 
and vegetables, and other states are falling into line as the season 
progresses. Additional funds will be available for this work on July 
1, 1923, and the Department hoj)es to be able to render such service in 
almost any important shipping district where it may be desired after 
that date. 

The act of Congress j)rovides that a fee shall be charged for this 
service which shall be reasonable and as nearly as may be cover the 
cost of the service rendered, but so far as the Department of Agriculture 
collects these fees they must go into the Treasury of the United States 
as miscellaneous receipts. However, there is no restriction upon the 
(Continued on Par/e 2)

(Continued froin Page 1) 

arrangements which the Department may make with the, states for the 
joint handling of the work, and if the Department chooses to provide 
that the State collect and expend the fees there is no legal difficulty 
in carrying out such an arrangement. In every case^ however, the 
Federal Department sees to it that adequate supervision is provided 
so that the methods of inspecting for grade and condition shall be 
uniform throughout the United States. 

Congress has provided that the certificate issued by the Federal 
inspector on behalf of the Secretary of Agriculture shall be prima facie 
evidence in all courts of the United States as to the truth of the facts 
stated thereon. Thus these shipping-point certificates become highly 
valuable commercial documents in the hands of any organization which 
is in a position to make f.o.b. sales. In fact, if such sales can be con- 
cluded and confirmed on the basis of a definite United States grade 
and the shipping-point certificate shows that the product shipped was 
actually of this grade, the transaction may be considered legally closed 
and \}iQ shipper in a position legally to enforce the payment of the 
full amount of the purchase through the courts. 

Should the receiver, upon examining the car, believe that the products 
are not of the grade certified by the inspector, he may call upon the 
Federal Department for a reinspection, to secure which he must pay 
in advance a fee of $12.00, or three times the usual fee charged for 
inspection in receiving markets. Two Federal inspectors will then 
reinspect the car, making an especially thorough and exhaustive 
examination, and if they sustain the buyer's appeal the original 
certificate is reversed and the buyer's fee refunded him. If, however, 
the original certificate is sustained the Government retains the $12.00 
which has been paid in advance by the receiver. In actual practice, 
however, it has been found that a negligible number of shipping-point 
certificates have actually been reversed in the markets. On the first 
45,000 cars inspected at shipping point, less than 70 appeals were made 
and less than half of these were sustained on reinspection. 

Shipping-point inspection work dovetails with the Department's work 
in standardization. The examination of the inspector shows the grower 
or association most conclusively whether or not the grade adopted is 
being adhered to. The official inspector is disinterested and his work 
has a most potent educational effect. If cars which do not meet the 
grade specifications, or which contain too large a percentage of defective 
stock, are shipped to market and bring unsatisfactory returns, the 
sales organization has a convincing answer to any complaint which 
the shipper may be inclined to make. The very fact that a sharp line 
of demarcation is being drawn at shipping point between products

Point-of -Origin Inspection in Twenty -two States

whicli are and those which are not up to grade does much to bring about 
uniformity in grading and standardization and efficiency in packing 
house practices. During the first season of this work veiy few 
eooj)erative organizations have taken Federal shipping-point inspection 
on all of their products, and some which have done so were not so 
organized as to secure the proper grading and standardization of the 
products inspected. 

"Wells A. Sherman, 
Bureau of Agricultural Economics. 

NOTE:- — Since the foregoing article was prepared for publication other states 
have been added to the list of those maintaining point-of -origin inspection. 
Among these is Xorth Carolina, her first service in this line being in connection 
with the Sandhills peach shipments. Every car of peaches shipiied from that 
section to date has been inspected by a trained specialist employed by the State 
Department of Agriculture and licensed by the Federal bureau af Agricultural 
Economies. Other crops will receive attention whenever the volume justifies and 
wherever the growers maintain the same active enthusiastic interest. — G. S.

NOTICE TO COTTON GINNERS 

Kequests from ginners for information regarding Chapter 167, Public 
Laws of 1923, have led us to include the entire text of this act for their 
information. The new laAv is entitled ''^An act to regulate numbering of 
cotton bales by public ginneries," and reads as follows : 

The General Assemlthj of North Carolina do eiia-ct:

cotton gin. tliat is, any cotton gin otliev tlian one ginning solely for the indi- 
vidual owner, owners, or operators thereof, shall hereafter be required to 
distinctly and clearly number, serially, each and every bale of cotton ginned, 
in one of the following ways : (1) mark in color upon the bagging of the bale, 
in figures; (2) attach a metal strip cari\ving serial number to one of the ties 
of the bale and ahead of the tie lock, and so secure it that ordinary handling 
will not remove or disfigure the number; (3) impress the serial number upon 
one of the bands or ties around the bale. 

Sec. 2. That any person, firm, or corporation failing or refusing to comply 
with the preceding section shall be guilty of a misdemeanor for each and every

OF MARKETS, RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA 



NEW MARKET NEWS SERVICE AVAILABLE 
TO NORTH CAROLINA 

The State Division of Markets ainiouuees the installation in its offices 
of the leased wire telegraph service of the United States Department of 
Agriculture. Offices were opened at Richmond and Atlanta on Septem- 
ber 4th, at Raleigh, September 5th, and others at Columbia and Jackson- 
ville are to be opened soon. The extension of the branch line to the 
southeast followed the extension on July 16th of a new line from Kansas 
City to San Trancisco to serve western states. 

The leased wire circuits are in operation from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, 
except Sundays, and through the development of code systems are more 
intensively used than any other leased wire system in existence, in the 
opinion of department telegraphers. Official estimates place the amount 
of traffic handled by the circuits "prior to the present extensions at 
approximately $650,000 per year, based on commercial rates, with an 
actual cost to the Government of $160,000, a saving of nearly $500,000 
annually. 

All traffic is scheduled and controlled by the Washington office and is 
transmitted simultaneously to all the big market centers. During the 
night the Washington office received hundreds of telegrams from rail- 
roads reporting the carload movement of perishable commodities over 
their respective divisions. These telegrams give the origin, destination, 
commodity, and number of carloads in transit. The information is 
classified and tabulated and moved to all branch offices early the next 
morning to show graphically the total volume of perishable fruit and 
vegetable products moving to the various cities. 

Following this information the estimated receipts at livestock markets 
are dispatched, followed by general reports on livestock, meats, and other 
products showing supply, demand, wholesale prices, and conditions. 
Flashes on cattle, sheep and hogs are dispatched. Butter and egg quota- 
tions, and local quotations and information from the big markets on 
fruits and vegetables follow. During the day considerable general in- 
formation on cold storage products, peanuts, honey, hay, grain, feed, 
butter, eggs, cheese, livestock, fruits and vegetables moves over the 
circuits. 

At the close of the day market summaries on all commodities are 
dispatched for release to more than 2,000 newspapers throughout the 
country. Special reports are also prepared for radio, telephone, or tele- 
graph broadcasting stations and transmitted to the offices of distribution. 
The information received over the wires at the various branch offices is 
immediately coronaunicated to producers and the trade by telephone, 
telegraph, radio, and the press so that almost at any moment farmers 
and the trade everywhere may have an accurate picture of the national 



Farmers' Market Bulletin 3 

agricultiiral market situation. Consuming centers are also advised as 
to the supplies of various products. This enables producers to regulate 
shipments so as to prevent the glutting or undersupplying of markets 
which according to department officials is the outstanding value of the 
service as the result is stabilization of prices to both producers and 
consumers. 

For further information, wire or vrite the Division of Markets,

NOW TO FIND A M.IRKET FOR KRAUT 

It's the same old story — freight rates so high that the product cannot 
be shijiped out of the producing area. ]^ot all men, however, are daunted 
by such mere circumstances, and so growers in Watauga County who 
cannot afford to ship cabbage are converting that same cabbage into a 
marketable product that will bear the freight rate. You will want to 
add sauerkraut to the supplies you lay by for the winter. The prices 
are reasonable and you can buy in any quantity from a number 3 can up 
to a 45-gallon barrel. All inquiries should be addressed to John B. 
Steele, Boone, ^N". C. (Please mention the Farmers' Market Bulletin.) 

APPLE GRADES REVISED 

The apple grades which have been effective in I^orth Carolina since 
1920 are to be replaced soon with a revised set of grades. Copies of the 
new grades may be obtained from the State Division of Markets, Raleigh. 
Inasmuch as many growers have already ordered their lithograph labels 
for this season, both old and new grades wall be permissible this season. 
The greatest difference between the old and the new grades is in the 
names. Standard Fancy will give way to U. S. Fancy; Standard A to 
U. S. IvTo. 1, and Standard B to U. S. ISTo. 2. The color requirements 
for U. S. Fancy and U. S. Iv'o. 1 have also been lowered considerably. 
If at all possible, we are recommending the use of the revised grades as 
we believe growers will find that the changes make the new grades more 
practical. 



KILLING THE GOOSE THAT LAYS THE GOLDEN EGGS 

One of the greatest curses to our cantaloupe industry is the mad rush 
among certain shippers to put the first load on the market. Reason 
gives way to the craving for gold and shipments of immature cantaloupes 
result. Doubtless these growers are rewarded by higher prices on the 
initial shipments, but the consuming public knows and wants good 
melons. Shipments of immature stock injures .the reputation of your 
locality, and greatly reduces the prices for succeeding shipments. Grow- 
ers cannot afford to allow this practice to be continued. Community 
sentiment can do much to outlaw it.

GOOD BULLS PAY 



One of the most interesting observations in the cooperative sale of 
beef cattle at Spruce Pine, 1^. C, October lOtli, was the fact that 
quality in cattle was rewarded by a better price. Some of the cattle 
men stated that we might as well begin to improve our lierds or we will 
in a few years be too far gone to accomplish much in years to come. 

Many farmers are asking what is a good bull worth ? How much can 
I afford to pay for a bull? etc. The car of common SOO-pound steers 
in this sale brought $4.60 per 100 pounds, while the good steers of the 
same Aveight brought $6.25 per 100 pounds — a difference of $1.65 per 
100 pounds, or $13.20 per steer of 800 pounds. Now, by using him 
properly — mating one time and not allowing the bull to "run" with the 
cows — fifty calves may be gotten from a matured bull in one year. 
When one calf as a coming two-year-old, dropped in spring and sold in 
the fall of the year following, is worth $13.20 more than the common 
calf, we may state that the good purebred bull is worth $660 more than 
the scrub bull. We should not forget that the scrub, as well as the 
purebred, is to have feed and a certain amount of attention, and the 
$660 represents an income over and above the value of the calves from 
scrub animals. 

Western ISTorth Carolina has long been a beef cattle producing section. 
It will soon lose some of its distinction of being sucb unless something 
is done to improve and keep up the quality of the cattle offered for sale. 

Many farmers are now saying. How are we to get these bulls? Who 
is going to purchase, feed and care for them? 

The long looked for cooperation among farmers everywhere must be 
practiced in this particular case. Most of Western ISTorth Carolina 
cattle producers keep only a few cows. For one farmer to purchase, 
feed and care for a good bull for the entire community is not going to 
work, as the service fees are small and many of them remain unpaid. 

The sensible thing to do is to form some bull associations similar to 
the plan worked out by the dairymen whereby three to five bulls may 
be bought by twenty to thirty farmers and the bulls put in the three to 
five communities — one for each community, so that a cow may not be 
driven over tAvo miles to a bull. At the end of every two years these 
bulls are exchanged — the bull in community or block jSTo. 1 going to 
block jVo. 2, etc. If five bulls were used in five blocks there would be 
good bulls in these five communities for ten years with no more outlay 
in cost to buy bulls, unless a death of a bull should occur. These five 
bulls can be bought for $1,000 ($200 each), and each year, according 
to the figures shown previously, they are worth five times $660, or 
$3,300, or in ten years $33,000 more than the value of the offspring 
from the scrub bull. 



Farmers' Market Bulletin 5 

We are told tliat money talks. Tliese figures are taken from actual 
sale figures in a cooperative sale of cattle in Western jSTorth Carolina. 
Wliy waste time in getting good bulls when by cooperation the matter 
is so simple ? 

The farmers are the ones who will purchase, feed and care for these 
bulls if they are to have them. The problem of "feed and care" can 
be worked out in such a way that the one farmer who undertakes this

WHEN TO MARKET HOGS 



V. W. Lewis 



The October 19tli issue of the Chicago Drovers Journal quotes : "Con- 
tinued excessive hog supply again forces off prices. Best at $7.50, 
lowest top since July 3d.." 

What does this mean? The same old story, and many of our farmers 
are still holding to the idea of selling their surplus hogs after they 
have gleaned the fields, getting them off in jSTovember, December, and 
January 



JIM. ft». MAS. AMIU. M«f JUNE JULY AUO. 




Average pi'ice of live hogs by months on the 
Chica.go market over a period of twenty years, 
1002-21, inchisive. When would you say market 
hogs ? Southern farmers sell the bulk of their 
surplus hogs during November, December and 
January, when they are cheapest. 



Let US study our chart again, familiarizing ourselves with what has 
been going on for twenty years on the Chicago market. Take note that 
April and September have been the highest months on the average, but 
during the past few years our Corn-Belt friends are making use of the 
advantages of getting their hogs on an early market, and the averages 
have been pulled up about a month, thereby making it necessary that 
we get our hogs on the market in March and August for greater cer- 
tainty of the best prices for the year. 

In 1915 the U. S. Bureau of Markets conducted an investigation 
which indicated that 35 per cent of the hog crop is marketed in the fall, 
41 per cent in the winter, 18 per cent in the spring, and 6 per cent in 
the summer.

The farmer producing cotton as a money crop must adjust himself to 
producing another money crop that requires more thought and skill in 
producing and marketing. He is not, as a general thing, familiar with 
"balancing rations," ^'ratios," ''type," ''quality," "cost of production," 
"time of selling," "the daily livestock market," and "the cost of market- 
ing." 

In order to make a success of livestock production, we cannot afford 
to be lacking in information concerning what the market demands, how 
to produce the product, and when and how to get the product on the 
market to accomplish best results, which, in the end, are determined by 
net profits to the producer and a satisfactory product to the consumer. 

For 1923, Xorth Carolina is estimated to have the following live- 
stock values : 

Beef cattle 274,000 @ $17.10 per head $ 4,685,400.00 

Milk cattle 365,000 @ 39.00 per head 14,235,000.00 

Sheep 81,000 @ 5.60 per head 453,000.00 

Swine 1,271,000 @ 13.30 per head 16,904,000.00 

Total $36,278,000.00 

"We note that hogs occupy the highest place in these values for a 
single class of livestock, it being 46^2 per cent of the whole. The hog 
is widely distributed in the State and is an animal that farmers know 
more or less about, and can be made a great money crop for the State ; 
but we should observe the following : 

1. That to make money with hogs, we must have a knowledge of feed- 
ing and marketing. 

2. That intelligent feeding embraces time, quality, cost. 

3. That intelligent marketing embraces time, quality, knowledge of 
value of the product, and information concerning the markets. 

4. That the office of Swine Extension and the ISTorth Carolina Divi- 
sion of Markets in cooperation with County Agents will be glad to help 
map out a plan whereby feeding and marketing of hogs can be put on 
a more profitable basis.

ONLY A HULL BETWEEN YOU AND A MARKET 

In many parts of the State considerable quantities of black walnuts 
bave been left lying under the trees because local prices of around one 
dollar per bushel were not considered sufficient compensation for gather- 
ing and hulling. The truth of the matter is that as a visual rule there 
is not any great demand for the hulled nuts at remunerative prices and 
yet there is an increasing demand for the nut meats at good prices. 
This is only another illustration of how we can make markets for what 
we have by converting an unprofitable article into a form which is in 
great demand. The difference in demand and price should justify the 
additional labor. Additional information will be supplied to those 
interested. 



WHIMS IN COLOR 

Xew York has generally been regarded as being partial to white eggs. 
This should mean something to you if you depend upon that market. 
Closely selected fresh white eggs from nearby points brought 86 cents 
per dozen late in jSTovember while brown eggs of the same quality brought 
only 77 cents on the same day. This dift'erence can't be due to a differ- 
ence in food value. Then, why is it ? It is not up to us to find excuses 
for or criticize the whims of the oSTew Yorkers. If they really prefer 
white eggs and are willing to pay nine cents per dozen as a premium, 
can't we really afford to cater to their demand ? 

Note. — The herd of beef cattle shown on the front page of the November 
Farmers' Market Bulletin is the property of Sanford & Rich, Moeksville. 
We appreciate receiving photographs suitable for illustratjug our little bulletin.

DOLLARS AND SENSE FROM POULTRY 

Farm poultry provides a steady source of income during the periods of 
depression as well as during years wlien all other sources of farm income 
are at their best. 

Most of us like eggs, fried chicken or baked turkey with cranberry 
sauce. Then, too, we are becoming more and more insistent that these 
articles of food be of better quality; hence, the difference in price between 
closely selected eggs, or milk-fed broilers and the general run of such 
products. 

Occasionally as Ave travel around we are presented with a boiled egg 
with a chicken in it or with steaming hot fried eggs "vvith a rich sulphur- 
ous odor which betrays their age and partial decay. Can you think of 
anything more disgusting? Surely these eggs came from a farm where 
they use no system as to feeding or handling. Why don't they produce 
infertile eggs and market them often? 

On the other hand', we A'isit points where the farmers are really in- 
terested in their poultry. They have standard bred flocks, they feed 
them properly, and they get eggs when eggs are scarce and prices high. 
It is no wonder they are receiving S-i to 88 cents per dozen for a superior 
article Avhen the average poultry keeper is getting 35 to 50 cents a 
dozen. These are actual figures from a county in IS^orth Carolina Avhich 
we visited less than a month ago. 

What does all this mean? We must carry out faithfully a program 
of standardization. Standard grades and standard packs are noAV es- 
sential for all articles of food, and in this case it is necessary to start 
with standard bred poultry. 

Most of the eggs and poultry from this State now come, and for many 
years should continue to come, from the small flocks. When these farm 
flocks are carefully developed, as has been done in a number of our 
counties, it is possible to put standard products on the market by com- 
bining the efforts of these small producers. This is accomplished 
through an organization whose purpose shall be to direct the production 
and marketing of a high-class article of food. To insure uniformity 
of product the members of such an organization agree upon the breed 
of poultry best suited to their needs and then all adopt this as standard. 

In order that consumers may get fresh eggs of high quality it is neces- 
sary that the eggs be marketed twice a Aveek during the Avinter and three 
or more times a Aveek during the summer. As the standard egg case 
holds 30 dozens of eggs it Avill require the production of approximately 
300 hens to keep the eggs moving rapidly enough to get them on the 
market in good shape if sold by the crate. This number of hens is out 
of line with the average farm flock and so it becomes all the more neces- 
sary to have some sort of organization to take care of the situation as it 
develops in the various counties. 

Even though the entire egg production of a county is needed for con- 
sumption Avithin its OAvn boundaries, it is bad management for each 



Farmees' Market Bulletin 3 

farmer with, a few eggs to market to spend a great amount of time eacli 
year peddling eggs and competing witli his neighbors in keeping the 
market below wliat it should be. 

In all phases of cooperative marketing the policy recently adopted is 
to build up an organization on the commodity basis. An egg-marketing 
organization handled properly could become a most vital aid both to the 
producers and consumers. As a protection to the public who want 
quality eggs and poultry, and as a means of securing for the producer 
a greater proportion of the price the consumer pays, the organization is 
sure to come. 

What a great thing it would be if every farmer who has mongrel hens 
would substitute standard bred hens and then feed them and care for 
them in accordance with the methods which the experiences of successful 
poultrymen have proved to yield the greatest returns in quality, quantity, 
and net income. The products would then find a ready market. The 
day of the partially incubated or partially decayed egg now served to the 
trade would be at an end, and all could enjoy a most wholesome and 
palatable product. The marketing problem would pass, and the possible 
source of income from good farm flocks would help stabilize conditions 
on the farm when death blows come to the cotton crop on account of 
the boll weevil, or when reverses creep into other lines of farm work. 



PROCRASTINATION 

i^ative spring lambs have sold even higher since the Avar than they 
did during the war. Wool, too, is bringing a good price and the outlook 
is bright indeed for the farmer who has sheep and is willing to care for 
them properly. 

Por the past twenty years on the Chicago market lamibs have brought 
most money per pound along in April. The corn-belt farmers, because 
of climatic conditions, cannot have their lambs ready in April. Eastern 
North Carolina farmers can, and yet with all the advantages of climate 
that we have, very few lambs are dropped by January 1st, and by far 
the majority of them are born during March and April. 

With the grazing we could have from rye and oats and cover crops, 
how much better it would be to have the lambs come in ]Srovember. 
Then we could have them ready for the high prices which usually feature 
the April market. Advantages which should be considered are the most 
economic use of labor at this season, the control of stomach worms, and 
the higher prices — three very important factors. 

Why should we attempt to follow the exact time and manner of live- 
stock production as followed in the Middle West? Why not capitalize 
our own advantageous climatic conditions and surroundings to bring in 
greater returns from the same class of production by getting oui- product 



4 Farmers' Market Bulletin 

on the market when the producers of the Middle West cannot compete 
with us? Could Florida afford to grow strawberries for our northern 
markets if she had them ripen just about the time when the strawberry 
harvest was on in New Jersey, Delaware and Kentucky? 

The time has come when the producer who plods along without think- 
ing will, either involuntarily or voluntarily, need to turn the farm over 
to some one who reads and thinks, then acts. Money talks. Get the 
products on the market at a time when they bring most. Let's replace 
the old methods before they run us out of business.
